Welcome to the blog!

First a bit of background information on myself.

Originally from Texas, I have worked in the football/soccer retail for more than the 10+ years.

For much of that time I worked as the Footwear Manager for The Soccer Corner and More based in North Texas.

In 2017, I decided to make a giant leap in my personal life and move to Japan.

This is not the first time I have lived overseas, having previously lived in the UK for 5 years.

And now to the blog. I hope to offer some insights based on my expertise of working in the industry for so long as well as giving an insight into the Japanese football industry as well.

Also, like all people I have my biases, but I will always be honest about my opinion on something, even if it comes from a brand or product line I like or dislike.

Through the blog I’m hoping that not only readers will learn something from me, but that I in turn learn something from you all.
