What Burning Man Taught Me About Manufacturing

Hey hey. It has been awhile since I put my thoughts to blog. The reason for the hiatus is that I have been re-entering back into society. That means I took a trip to camp in the Nevada Desert for 11 days. Yep, I went to Burning Man. This was my second…

Saying Goodbye to MakeSimply. Saying hello to 2015

I am leaving MakeSimply as of the new year 2015. It was fun being the face of MakeSimply for over two years. Within that time I have done a lot for MakeSimply as one of its co-founders. Starting and bringing a new business to life is not easy and takes…

Apple and Beats; I am Not Sure Why, But I Will Voice An Option Like Everyone Else

At first I was a Microsoft user. I built my own machines. I used DOS back in the day and WordPerfect. My first laptop was an IBM Lug-able. It was so heavy that you had to use a luggage cart. I switched to Apple in 2008. I admit it, I bought it because it…
