Remarkable, really. Seeing so many influential leaders in one place, honoring one man that did more to change the 20th century than they did, and the word "selfie" stealing the thunder.

Hey, I know I've been away for a while, but I've been busy! I took a new job in Birmingham, Alabama, set a new list of #101in1001  goals and hope to start on some cool side projects. Oh, and I met Oprah. 

BUSY BUSY!

This is my favorite bar in Birmingham. Tucked into 5 Points. Can be a quiet place to talk with friends or have a huge party. Locals frequent the place. Great bartenders and service. Owner is great!

Super cool place. Tons of history. One of the last remaining steel Mills in Birmingham. They host a weekend music festival each year called Sloss Fest. It's incredible!
