In his final year alone, Gulley and the Hogs criss-crossed the United States from as far west as Maui in the pre-season, and to the east in Athens, GA.
But despite all the traveling that comes with the territory of being a college basketball player, nothing could have prepared Gulley for the adventure he’s on now that his playing days are over.
After graduating from the UA last year, Gulley has been traveling the world for Jack Bragg, a company he founded with fellow Walton College of Business graduate Andrew Denton.
The company sells t-shirts to help finance their mission to connect people through their stories.
“Jack Bragg is essentially a company about self expression,” Gulley said, “The aim is to show regardless of location, race, religion, or financial stature we all go through similar things. We collect stories from individuals everywhere we go.”
Over the last several months, they’ve been in the process of visiting over 30 countries in a 200-day period to try and demonstrate that “everyone is connected through a network of relatable experiences.”
The idea behind collecting and sharing the stories is to “empower people through their own struggles,” and “remove the obscurity we experience with our own self image.”
The company also donates proceeds from the sales of their products to charities they encounter during their travels.
So far, Gulley and his travel companions have spent time in New Zealand, Indonesia, Singapore, Malaysia, and Thailand meeting people and collecting stories for the project. Several of them have been posted as video confessions to the Jack Bragg website, and Gulley said the company is currently working on developing other ways to use the content they’re creating.
