Mr. Pullin started expressing his views to teachers in high school, as well as throughout his adult and business life. He can hear a concerned view, or see a finished product, and if he is interested in the subject or concern, he looks to see what are different ways to produce a new product. He does NOT consider what he can do to tweak the existing product to fool the inexperienced, potential customer. This is where his designs have become recognized and sought. He has enough new designs and working prototypes to stay in the industry for many years; all of these products are dated, documented and notarized, and witnessed by licensed professionals. He is constantly devising new products, besides in the sports industry. The most gratifying aspect of his career is to hear his clients and customers say how well his product performs and how he has made their life complete. No one could ask for more.
