  • Why I Am Trying to Avoid Fanboyism

    The last couple of weeks I’ve been really impressed with the concept of “less is more.”

    In a culture that thrives off more, having less has certainly become counter cultural – but it works.

    This is one of the reasons – in my opinion – Apple has historically done well. There are less options.

    So how does that play out in my own life?

  • The Secret to My Success

    Earlier this month, my heart was struck with great joy and sadness.

    While both of these seem like polar opposites, both events struck a chord with me in the same way. A lesson in life that I try to remind myself all the time.

    Let me start with the sadness…

    Don, the man that gave me my first job, died this month.

  • Half-Life: Series Complete

    I went several years without gaming.

    There were several factors as to why I stopped (which I may write about in the future), and it’s been a lot of fun getting back into it these past several months.

  • Challenge Accepted

    At the end of 2014, I took a long shot.

    I saw a job opening on the Church Relevance website and thought I would drop my name into the running.

    Having read the job description, I figured I could handle it and their overall mission was very curious to me.

    With a mention to it being a “telecommuting position,” the choice was easy. So, I followed through with the application process.

  • Never Disconnected

    The weekend before last, we all loaded up into our car and drove down to Scerni, Italy.

    The six hour drive took us back to a place where we lived for 4-years and it had been about a year since we had been back.

    It was a great trip.

    Me and the Mrs. enjoyed it.

    The kids enjoyed it.

    And their grandparents enjoyed it.

    Here are some of the photos I snagged and shared on my Instagram:

  • Human Bandwidth

    Since the beginning of the month, my life has been nothing but crazy.

    Between starting a new job, recovering from being sick, landing a few new projects, and a quick weekend trip with the family, my human bandwidth has been maxed-out.

    I’ve known there to be limits, but have never really experienced it like this before.
