Since I rarely post publicly, those following me only because I worked at Google can remove me now. 

For all others: You can expect more posts from me in the future…now that I have more time to be social :-)

Taken this morning,…on my last drive into work as a 'Zoogler'.

My next challenge awaits me in the new year…in a place where it never snows.

I'll miss Google and I'll miss the snow…but I'm looking forward to what the future brings.

Happy new year!

It would be great to meet up when you visit, +amy walsh, but we will be several hours drive from Saint Augustine. I'll send you details directly, just in case you plan to ever venture over to the Gulf side or can meet in Olrando :-)

I don't post publicly much, but I'm making an exception as I'm proud of what my wife, +Carla Rippstein, is doing today...she's going out of her comfort zone to give a talk at The Powerhouse event tonight in Zurich!

The topic she was asked to speak about focuses on 'reinventing yourself in Switzerland'. From the pieces she's shared with me, her talk is a mix of personal and professional info from the past, present and future...with some motivational thoughts mixed in for those looking for it  

The other two talks tonight sound interesting too...definitely a good event to attend and a great group to get involved with (assuming you live near Zurich).

Tonight's event is sold out, but here's where you can find more info:
www.powerhousecollective.com/events

Hopefully a recorded version of her talk will be made available for those who couldn't attend in person. I will let you know if this happens (likely to be hosted on her website at www.paperandpartylove.com).

Tonight was a nice night to roast marshmallows with the family while watching the Lyrid meteor shower.

It was fun, +Elisabeth Rippstein. We saw a few shooting stars while hanging out at our beachfront campfire. I wasn't able to capture those images on camera, so I opted for sharing the Auto Awesome animation from my campfire shots :-)

Always like going here as there's something for everyone in our family. The food has been consistently good and the place is always clean. Considering the consistency of service, variety of food, and relaxed atmosphere, I recommend this place to anyone hungry and spending time midway down FMB.

My family and I love the food and ambience here. Don't let the location and exterior deter you...this is a great place for steaks + burgers and the neighboring meat shop is one of the best I've seen in Switzerland.

Had a great lunch here today. The lunch menu was limited but still had something for everyone. The food was fresh and perfectly seasoned. The ambiance and furniture are nice...a perfect match for the local hillside area. The service was friendly and professional. I look forward to another visit soon, especially to try their evening and brunch menus.
