  • Away from Instagram and Back Again

    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?


  • Why I Am Trying to Avoid Fanboyism

    My next computer might not be an Apple.

    I know, it’s sounds crazy, but I’ve been really trying to think everything through.

    “Fanboyism” is a very powerful groupthink dynamic and I don’t want to be sucked into it—again.

    I remember when I made the switch from Windows to Apple. I became that person that said they would never go back, but alas, here I am entertaining the idea.


  • 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.

    The last game I ever played as a true gamer was Half-Life.

    So when I began to venture back into the video gaming world, jumping on a sweet deal from Steam for the entire Half-Life series seemed fairly poetic.


  • 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:
