One Year Without Soda

I’ve never been a huge New Year’s resolution guy. I set goals for myself, but I rarely do yearly resolutions. One of my personal goals for 2016 was to give up sodas for good.

Reflections on Steve Jobs

Tonight as I sat on the couch reading the news coverage on Steve Jobs’ passing, it struck me why I’m enamored with Apple’s products. It’s not that I’m a fanboy (okay, I might be on the edge of being one..) — it’s because of the culture set in place by Steve Jobs. He didn’t just […]

Goodbye Trailblazer

A couple weeks ago, we went to San Diego on a half vacation / half business trip. A huge thanks to Ben & Joel for agreeing to let my family come along! Knowing that we’d be driving to San Diego and Orlando this year, we took my Trailblazer in to have the AC fixed as […]
