Welcome to


Photographing kitesurfing, fashion and NY street scenes to fund children's sports programs while facilitating media, sports marketing, and fashion synergies is a humble philanthropic effort to make a difference in the lives of children.  


Our goal is simple, to have 100+ children in Summer sports clinics each year.  We started in 2013 and so far we have kitesurfing organizations, kitesurfing equipment companies, cosmetic companies, sports talent representation, a sports TV Network, a News TV Network, Aruba Hi-Winds, a global CPG company, NYFW designers like Olga Papkovitch and her beautiful magazine PopImpressKA Journal all helping the cause.   Thank you.    


I learned what f-stop smelled like at age 9,  and every time I watch a piece of paper turn into a photograph, it feels like magic. To this day, I'm still amazed at what is spun from both sides of a lens.  KissMyKite is a good cause for children based on a love for photography and making media synergies developed over 30 years, work on behalf of those that give.


As the current CEO of Filcro Media in New York, we work diligently to identify global media and broadcasting executives and bring media M&A to fruition.  I trust that those in the sports, fashion, media, CPG , travel and cosmetic industries will continue to contribute to this deserving cause by asking, "how can we help?".

We accept sports equipment for kids and would love sponsorship(s) of youth sports clinics. sponsorship of international sporting events, all with your company name and products tied to media.  Donations of Kites, boards, beautiful swimwear and beach / resort apparel for photo shoots are ALL welcome and the photographs are magazine quality.  We can work with any budget to make this a great success.  Thank you WRNN / New Your News 1 / Fios News and Chairman Dick French for your support.


To keep the site interesting we showcase kitesurfing, windsurfing, beach sports, kitesurfing lifestyle, SFWNY and NYFW.    Making sure we have top access to these events is a priority.... So support from the designers, IMG, SFWNY / NYFW, Aruba Hi-Winds, ArtHeartsFashion, InStyle and PopImpressKA Journal is greatly appreciated. and with Best Regards, Tony
