When I was 18, I spoke at a Key Club event on Honolulu. I remained on the island for a few more days, doing a variety of tourist activities. On one of the days, we ventured to Pearl Harbor and out to the Arizona Memorial. I remember it being a beautiful day. I remember really […]
So today’s entry has nothing to do with technology, but rather just a really great way to enhance a club leadership day at your school. I had the great opportunity to present at Eisenhower High School in Shelby Township, Michigan earlier today. The school hosted a great event combining various leaders from choir, drama, athletics, […]
“To infinity… and beyond!”- Buzz Lightyear It seems to me to be the perfect quote to describe Steve Jobs. Without him, there would be no Buzz Lightyear. Without him, I wouldn’t be typing this blog up as easily on my MacBook Pro with iTunes playing in the background. You may call it sentimental, but there […]
On Saturday night, my girlfriend and I met up with several friends on Ocean Beach in San Diego. We thought it’d be fun to have a nice bonfire on the beach, cook some dinner, and enjoy some nice conversation. My girlfriend and I brought the bulk on the supplies: two big bunches of firewood, matches, […]
My mom sent me a quick email yesterday. She was talking with one of her elementary school students who was really upset that she had lost the student council election. My mom briefly told the girl about me and asked if I might be able to pop by campus next time I’m in town. You […]
So last Saturday my girlfriend and I were able to attend the Railroad Revival Tour during its stop in Tempe. We went mainly to see Mumford & Sons, a band which we both love. Their songs and their sound just connect with me, and as I described last December, their music has served as a […]
A year ago this week I completed a chapter for a compilation leadership book. Sadly, due to forces outside my control, the book was never printed. Here is a copy of that chapter: The Seatbelt Sign is Off by Patrick Maurer Even with my frequent travel schedule, I still find myself looking out the airplane […]
I spent this past weekend up in Payson, Arizona the current students of the ASU Leadership Scholarship Program. It was a great experience (I should even have another video entry up soon that I shot while I was up in N. AZ). As an alum of the program, I’m always excited to see the current […]
So it’s last Thursday. I just finished a fun Link Crew freshmen orientation at Oxnard High School, and I have a little bit of time before my flight back to Phoenix. After a crazy week of travel that has already included a trip within a trip, I decide to spoil myself and head for a […]
Yesterday I had a great opportunity to do a leadership day at my alma mater, Leigh High School. As I led the students through various activities and discussions, I couldn’t help but also flashback to my days on campus and what “I had done” while I was in their shoes. During one discussion, a thought […]
