Well, my first out-of-box competition is in the books. I did as best as I could, and made my goals of not finishing last, and not ever stopping during one of the 4 WOD's that I had to do. I wasn't blazing fast, and the 24-inch box-overs are still my nemesis, but I kept pushing. Learned a lot, sweated out a ton and proved to myself I could do it. #strongerthanyesterday #crossfit works.

Well, the launch of Ray Ray's BBQ can be considered a success, at least through the lunch rush at Tony's Italian Market and Deli. The store saw a significant influx of customers and top turnovers this afternoon, as well as a lot of satisfied smiles and full stomachs. The dinner rush is yet to come, but it's been a good day.

My secret dream has been to have my food in a real restaurant, so this is a big, emotional day for my family and I. Looking back, it would not have been possible without +Aaron Kasten and the +Big Android BBQ having chosen me to be the Head Chef for the event all these years. It gave me the confidence, experience and will to move into this opportunity.

Sonos this week has finally gotten the two things I most wanted, the ability to link my At Bat MLB audio subscription as well as my Google Play music. While price wise they are still a bit steep, I believe Sonos offers the best hardware and service links out there. #wickedhappy

Certain models can, but then you are tethered via an audio cable. They now do it natively.

Introduction
I'm what you would call a jack of all trades. Currently I'm serving as support staff for Helium and the One-Click Installer for Cyanogen Inc., as well as working as the IT Director for Northside Christian Church. In the past I've been a writer for Ziff Davis with its Geek.com and ExtremeTech.com properties. I am a huge geek myself, being an avid Star Wars, Doctor Who and Android fan. 

I also am a semi-pro BBQ chef, specializing in smoked meats. I have cooked all over, the largest event being the Big Android BBQ in Austin, Texas.

I am a Christ follower, but not one of the right-wing Bible thumpers that are really bigots in disguise. I am a moderate politically, believe that both sides of the aisle have positive and negative things to offer.

I am by no means perfect, but I work actively on being a better person.
