HOW 1VSE CAME TO BE...
1Vision Sports and Entertainment started as a dream between a pair of high school students at Sanford H. Calhoun High School in Merrick, New York. One of them would go to law school, working in sports and entertainment business along the way, while the other opted for the world of professional baseball after sticking it out to earn a finance degree as an undergrad.
That pair was Patrick Bedell and Jake Thomas, who would go on to found 1Vision Sports & Entertainment in the Summer of 2018 following Thomas' retirement from professional baseball.
Their goal was simple but unique. Thanks to Patrick's experience in sports and entertainment law and Jake's firsthand accounts of what professional athletes go through when they navigate the process of making sports a career, they teamed up to provide clients a new and fresh take on the agent-client relationship.
They developed a great understanding of what is currently being done well in the world of sports and entertainment agency, but also what areas can be improved upon. This resulted in a unique approach to the traditional responsibilities that come with advising and representing, along with several resources that are not traditionally offered.
