Earlier this year I watched a few minutes of The Aviator, the biopic about Howard Hughes. Hughes is furious after watching the footage from Hell’s Angels which should showcase some of the best flight sequences ever captured on film. He had famously brought in dozens and dozens of pilots and filmed for weeks on end […]
This summer my wife and I spent just over two glorious weeks in Spain. In addition to experiencing the rich Spanish culture and history, as well as dedicated time with my wife, I found myself reminded at times of important life lessons. This short blog series will focus on the five lessons that jumped out […]
I can’t believe it has been it’s been fifteen years. A lot has happened since then. Some good. Some bad. Some joy. Some sorrow.

I don’t do the same with the cover. I happened to be a co-editor-in-chief back in the day and was part […]
So my wife and I went to a wine and painting class this past Sunday night. It was part of a series of Date Night Adventures we received as a wedding gift. It was fun. Neither of us are really artists. Yes, we each dabbled in photography in college, and I had art as an […]
So my wedding is quickly approaching (May 26th for those of you playing along at home). Almost all aspects are now planned and I’m pretty much in the home stretch, except for the standard diet and exercise that goes along with a wedding. First, I must say that my fiancee likes me just the way […]
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.
