So my building was sold on Friday. My wife and I moved here in May of 2012 and have loved everything about it. But the building was sold to a new apartment management company, and so we have new people in the front office. Normally, this wouldn’t mean anything. I’ve lived in a few different apartment complexes […]
So if you follow me on twitter, you may notice that I’m a San Diego Padres fan. I purchased a 21 game package for this season and I’m doing my best to catch a game whenever I can. They may not be the best team in baseball, but they are my local team, and I’ve […]
So I’m starting again. The past month has been fun. I got married. I went on a mini-moon to Napa with my wife. I ate whatever I wanted and slept in. I was lazy around the house. It’s been nice. But I’m starting again. I need to return to regular work. I need to return […]
Yep, I finished a half marathon. I posted its image on my personal facebook profile right after the race, and received tons of accolades for a jobs well done. People were incredibly positive and incredibly kind. But I felt bad about it. Don’t get me wrong. 13.1 one miles is not an easy feat. I […]

Here are links to everything I talked about, tweeted about, during the CADA Convention in San Diego. Thanks to all the educators who attended my sessions.

So I had the chance to present at the 60/6o session at the Annual Convention for the California Association of Directors of Activities. Here is a more fleshed out version of my 10 ideas (the format is 6 presenters each sharing 10 ideas for a total of 60 ideas in 60 minutes):
So I had to establish an online account today for my business and found myself in the familiar spot of filling out username, password, and setting up a few security questions with answers in the event that I forget my username and password. It took me quite some time to figure out my security questions, […]
So you saw it too, right? 34 minutes of a blackout. Yep. 34 minutes. As every sports story mentioned today, it looked as if it was (almost) exactly what the 49ers needed. As a childhood fan, it was exciting to see them almost come back from the brink like they had done so many times […]
(This article originally appeared in the newsletter for NASSCED) Around this time last year, my fiancée gave me a gift certificate to a knife skills class at Sur la table. I’m an avid Food Network viewer and wanna-be-chef, so I already knew some of the basics thanks to Alton Brown, but the class introduced me […]
