Thanks so much to the whole Vans Headquarters crew who took me around for the day.  I long to work for a company who has a pool to skate on your lunch hour.  Looking forward to working with you all on future projects! (fingers crossed)

my kind of lunch break

My kind of lunch break!  Though it was pointed out to me that sweating up a storm then sitting back at your desk for the rest of the afternoon isn’t for everyone.

Hello Kitty

Special thanks to Colton Sarlo, who accompanied me on this adventure.  It was insane to see how large, yet how small and family-like the whole operation is.
