Life is Shorts... Be Your Passion!
EARLY PASSION FOR TENNIS
COLONY BEACH & TENNIS RESORT 1978

My love for sport and the game of tennis began in the late 70s at the fledgling Nick Bollettieri Tennis Academy / Colony Beach & Tennis Resort. These were magical happy times. Check me out with the dutch boy haircut and Snauwaert Racquet.

LIFE IS SHORTS
BE YOUR PASSION

After running an IT business for many years, I woke up one morning dispassionate about the job. As a creative who loves the outdoors, sport and travel, I was ready for a career change. I came to the understanding that Life is Short, and for the remainder of my time on earth, I will only do things that I am truly passionate about... preferably in a pair of shorts.

A CHANCE GAME OF TENNIS
THE NECKER CUP

I always carry my racquet when traveling. You never know who you will meet...

While traveling the British Virgin Islands, I randomly played tennis against the head tennis pro for Necker Island. After our match - and a few rum punches by the beach - we dreamed up what would become the most fun tennis event in the world: the Necker Cup.

Going into its 11th year, the Necker Cup has grown into one of the most recognized annual charity pro-ams in the world. 

My First Collection

Influenced by the incredible seascapes, wildlife, and friendships made in the islands, I was inspired to create my first apparel collection. Merging the colors of the Caribbean with eco-friendly fabrics, fit and function, I outfitted our Necker Cup guests for the perfect day of tennis, golf, and sitting by the beach bar. Our guests loved the collection and the lemur logo and so my apparel journey began.
