Forest and Red (brother and sister) recently went to Crissy field.  While under the influence of significant peer pressure, Forest swam for the first time.  A few other pups also photographed - Enjoy!

Ryan's New Architectural Adventure
After 7.5 years at Google helping build the Developer Relations team and working on over 20 different developer products, I've decided to take the next step in my career and join a startup!  I'll be headed to  Vannevar Technology at the end of the month as their first product manager!

Vannevar has a mission of "Reimagining building design for a more sustainable future {at the speed of thought}"  I'm looking forward to working with this amazingly smart, multi-disciplinary and diverse team to make the world a better place. 

Of course, I'll miss all my amazing colleagues, friends and partners from my days at Google.  It's been great working with you!  I trust y'all will stay only one Google+ post away :-)

Cycling again, woohoo!
I hit the road yesterday for the first time in years.  It was exhilarating - fresh air blowing across my face, warm sun producing serotonin and great new friends.  

Now I just need to keep it up!

Digit Gets a New Toy
Bought #DigitTheDog a new toy in St. Helena.  She ran all over fetching it (left) until she was completely worn out (right).  So cute!

I recently got the honor of puppysitting Forest and Red.  We spent a good couple hours on the back patio playing and relaxing.  It's lovely how the older one (Red) is starting to bond with the new puppy (Forest).
