There’s a great idea that I read about recently where the Soho Grand – a fancy hotel in New York – provides its guests with a goldfish (for those who want them). It’s such a wonderful gesture –

Story
Tagline
A little inspiration goes a very long way.
Introduction
Originally from the Bay Area of Northern California, I've had the amazing opportunity to reside in Seattle, Paris, Los Angeles, and now call Sydney home. I've spent the better part of my career in the technology and consulting business, working for some start-ups and non-profits, as well as the global Fortune 500 companies Microsoft and The Walt Disney Company. During this time I've had the opportunity to travel widely, including being based in France for a year and a half by Microsoft and attaining permanent residency in Australia. 

Over the course of my career I've gained an expertise in digital media, software, and systems, and have had the privilege of working with award-winning teams in the process. A recent ventures was a web application start-up where science coincides with spirituality on the internet - a fascinating mix of intention and quantum physics. The product idea was to be the next evolutionary step is social networking.

I persist in having a long-lasting, inquisitive relationship with technology, with a particular fascination for its effects on humanity. Living abroad has instilled in me an ongoing passion for the study of different cultures and I continue to be an ardent student of history, leadership, and the human endeavor.
Bragging rights
I've survived a gunshot wound to the knee from a .357 magnum, third degree burns on my arm, I've seen Paris in the early morning from the top of Sacré Cœur and lived on a horse ranch in Idaho. I've met Bill Gates and The Duke of Marlborough. I got my first job when I was 14 and have been working passionately ever since.

I love the new Bourbon. Food is fantastic and inventive. As of this summer they now also have tables outside. Awesome place to watch the world go by.

Decided to head to Bondi for lunch yesterday. I hadn't been to Trio before but I'm sure glad that I did. Food, service and view were... totally awesome.

One of my favourite spots in the neighborhood. Try Sunday afternoon sessions for a great end to the weekend.

I've visited the centre a few times in the last year for minor aliments. They have always been very helpful and I've never had to wait long. I would highly recommend them for general medical needs.
