Inside Our Panel + Hoops Hang at Jumpman LA

Last week, we had the honor of hosting our first Panel + Hoops session at the epic Jumpman flagship in Downtown Los Angeles. The event featured a fatherhood panel moderated by FIF co-founder Natalie Alcala and starred FIF founding members Garrett Leight (founder of Garrett Leight California Optical), and renowned musicians DJ Hapa and DJ Spider who also host a father-focused podcast, A Tribe Called Dad.
Following the panel, which touched on everything from what the guys do to balance their family, careers, and sanity (meditation, travel, and sports were the top forms of release) to their big upcoming projects (GLCO’s 10-year anniversary is next year, DJ Hapa is creating a DJ program for Los Angeles Public Libraries, and DJ Spider is also the host of a genius Hip Hop Trivia project), the boys headed to Jumpman’s exclusive rooftop basketball court AKA “Flight Deck.”
Major thanks to Jumpman for making this day happen, and to Grass Fed Coffee, Uptime Energy, and This Bar Saves Lives for keep us all energized. We’ll def be organizing more Panel + Hoops hangs soon!
