This past weekend I visited with my older brother, Dave. He’s spent over a decade working in “post-production,” editing many of the popular reality shows on television including American Idol, The Apprentice, The Bachelor Pad, Jockeys, and Whale Wars. I’ve watched him work on mini-projects for our family or a local non-profit. To be honest, […]
I spent this past Saturday night, sitting in my cousins’ backyard, alongside my girlfriend and my brother, as we awaited an outdoor viewing of The Princess Bride. We had a fire going in their fire pit, ready to await our collection of marshmallows, chocolate squares, and graham crackers. Yep, it was S’Mores Time. I seriously […]
So I’m doing some laundry today. I’ve been in San Diego for a week now, and while it is DEFINITELY cooler than Phoenix, I’ve still been outside and sweating in summer heat.

Sorry for the lack of blogs this week. I spent the week settling in San Diego where I’ll be for the next few weeks in between speaking engagements as I escape the AZ sun. Regular blogs will be back from me next week. In the meantime, revisit the Summer School entries if you haven’t yet. […]
So it’s week five. Sorry there still is no video from me. I’m starting to feel better, but still have a bit of a cough that makes talking in video form a little tough. I’m aiming to finish strong with a video next week. We’re hitting the closing stages of Summer School. Ideally, you’re doing […]
