  • The Green Knight: Rocket City, USA
    home you remember will no longer exist If you judge by buildings and neighborhoods and landscapes then that is true However I found that it absolutely still existed due to the people we saw while we were there We stayed with good family friends who used to keep me when my parents were out of town We had lunch with several other family friends and even caught up with the parents of some of my elementary school friends and classmates My mom has a plaque that says A house is made of brick and stone A home is made of love alone I think that applies to towns in addition to houses it s the people who make it a home town more than anything physical While Huntsville is now missing many of the people one above all whom I associate with fond childhood memories there are still plenty of great people there smart fun good natured accomplished people After all it takes great people to accomplish the great feats for which Huntsville is known This brief stroll down memory lane reminded me not only of that put a man on the moon spirit but also of how blessed Katie and I are to have such wonderful people in our lives Posted by Bryan Hassin at 16 20 Email This BlogThis Share to Twitter Share to Facebook Share to Pinterest Labels Huntsville No comments Post a Comment Newer Post Older Post Home Subscribe to Post Comments Atom About Me Bryan Hassin Cleantech entrepreneur with global experience Rice Owl IMD alum and lover of both wine and sports View my complete profile Google Badge Twitter Blog Archive 2016 1 January 1 2015 28 December 3 November 1 October 2 September 5 August 1 July 1 June 4 May 1 April 3

  • The Green Knight: A Family Wedding
    turned into hours and hours of sing a long what fun The day of the wedding couldn t have been more perfect We were blessed with our third straight day of awesome weather The bride started the day by leading us in the full Ashtanga Yoga primary series I then joined the groom for a trail run along the Lake Tahoe Rim Trail All this led up to the main event the wedding itself The ceremony was short and sweet and I was privileged to have a front row seat After the bride and groom were pronounced husband and wife we spent a glorious afternoon sipping on champagne playing yard games and dining outside This of course was followed by hours and hours of dancing until the wee hours of the morning I couldn t have imagined anything better for the happy couple Sunday we lazily breakfasted and said sad fond goodbyes It had been a wonderful joyous celebration in an amazing location but eventually it was time to return to reality For Katie and me however reality was delayed by another day Our flight back to Houston wasn t until Monday so we had to spend the night at a hotel casino in Reno Let me tell you that was one classy place After an evening of smoky gaming tables poolside dancers and comped all you can eat buffets we finally returned to Houston What a weekend We are so so happy for Kelly and Mike and we were thrilled to be party of their new union We were especially thrilled that the way they wanted to celebrate happened to be a LOT of fun Posted by Bryan Hassin at 22 46 Email This BlogThis Share to Twitter Share to Facebook Share to Pinterest Labels family Lake Tahoe wedding

  • The Green Knight: Some Memorial Day Thoughts
    with the notion of him as a hypothetical peer I m spending the day listening to his old records and playing his old pinball machines And while I do focus a great deal on him each Memorial Day I also take plenty of time to reflect on my gratitude to those who have died while putting themselves in harm s way for our country It is humbling to think of how little I ve risked or sacrificed relative to them It always leaves me with a sense of duty and purpose that I must do everything I can to ensure they didn t die in vain I must be the best I can be as a person as a professional and as a citizen So thank you fallen patriots I m trying to live up to your example Posted by Bryan Hassin at 16 54 Email This BlogThis Share to Twitter Share to Facebook Share to Pinterest Labels Guido Hassin USA 1 comment Valerie Neal said And it bears noting that while your dad did not serve in the active duty military as your grandfathers did he spent his entire professional career in service to the US Navy and US Army working for the Department of Defense Another reason to reflect and be proud of him Monday May 27 2013 at 5 05 00 PM EDT Post a Comment Newer Post Older Post Home Subscribe to Post Comments Atom About Me Bryan Hassin Cleantech entrepreneur with global experience Rice Owl IMD alum and lover of both wine and sports View my complete profile Google Badge Twitter Blog Archive 2016 1 January 1 2015 28 December 3 November 1 October 2 September 5 August 1 July 1 June 4 May 1 April 3 March 2 February 3 January 2 2014 26

  • The Green Knight: A Spark of Entrepreneurship at Rice
    highest impact initiative we could take selling it within the university administration gathering resources for it and making it happen Last Thursday this vision became a reality with the official launch of OwlSpark the Rice University startup accelerator Eight teams of Rice undergrads grad students MBAs and alumni are spending the summer working side by side in the Rice BRC to launch their startups The program provides funding mentorship learning and networking opportunities for the 37 members of these eight teams Thursday night s launch event attracted more than 100 attendees and was a really fantastic way to kick off the program This is such an exciting initiative for Rice but what really makes me proud is that OwlSpark was created entrepreneurially by students not by a top down decree OwlSpark is itself a startup so it will have to be agile and reactive to feedback from its participants mentors investors etc It s way too early to tell what we will have accomplished by Demo Day in August but it s a worthwhile shot and I m very excited about the possibilities Posted by Bryan Hassin at 17 20 Email This BlogThis Share to Twitter Share to Facebook Share to Pinterest Labels entrepreneurship OwlSpark Rice No comments Post a Comment Newer Post Older Post Home Subscribe to Post Comments Atom About Me Bryan Hassin Cleantech entrepreneur with global experience Rice Owl IMD alum and lover of both wine and sports View my complete profile Google Badge Twitter Blog Archive 2016 1 January 1 2015 28 December 3 November 1 October 2 September 5 August 1 July 1 June 4 May 1 April 3 March 2 February 3 January 2 2014 26 November 4 October 3 August 3 July 3 June 7 April 1 March 3 February 1 January 1

  • The Green Knight: My Brother's Wedding
    great food Once we felt that Nick had been sent off from bachelorhood in appropriate style we changed and got ready for the big event The wedding itself was Hawaiian themed and very informal With the sun beating down on us we all appreciated the informality It was also very meaningful from the written vows to the sentimental rings to the participation of the flower dog As we transitioned to the reception we also added a Top Gun theme We groomsmen donned aviators as we entered the reception to the Top Gun theme song and later on there was a You ve Lost That Lovin Feeling homage The Hawaiian theme continued as well as we were treated to a show by dancers from the Pacific Islands It was an interactive show so attendees were treated to more than they could ever want of me hula dancing We danced into the night and then continued the party in downtown St P It was a lot of fun sweaty sweaty fun The next day Katie Mom and I spent the morning in the Salvador Dali Museum what a trip And then we wrapped up with tapas at Ceviche before heading home All in all it was a fun weekend and a great way to send Nick and Jess off on their new adventure I won t try to recount my toasts here as they are private intended just for the bride groom and other wedding attendees I did quote one poem by Rumi though in honor of Nick s and Jess s strong attachment to the sea The religion of Love is a sea without a shore where the Lovers drown without a sigh without a cry To Nick and Jess bon voyage on your new life together Posted by Bryan Hassin
