Much has been written about the recent deal between Netflix and Comcast. Most writers misunderstood the deal because of how complex it is and others missed what I consider to be a dangerous implication in the long-run. I will briefly explain what prompted the deal, what it entails and why I am worried.

Amazing article from Polygon on the inside story behind Street Fighter: The Movie. It gives great insight into the difficulties of making a Hollywood film, particularly as a first time director.

Cool read man, I am no way near being a movie critic but I know when I wasted my time after watching a movie. Streetfighter was pretty bad.

Frame Rate had become one of my favorite weekly podcasts. I love the topics and Brian and Tom were phenomenal hosts. I hope that it will continue, so if you're also a fan, please fill this out!
 
Remember those 150+ eps of Frame Rate I did with Tom Merritt? If you liked them, take this 20-second survey.

Immediately.  Like, seriously.

Podcasts definitely still have a discovery issue. 

What are some of your favorite podcasts? I'm always looking for great new content to listen to.

Story
Tagline
International relations professional. Tech enthusiast and writer. Sports fan (Buffalo Bills, Buffalo Sabres, VT Hokies, NY Yankees).
Introduction
I grew up in a small town called Honeoye Falls, which is about 20 miles south of Rochester, NY. I loved growing up in Honeoye Falls, as it provided me with the small town atmosphere while still keeping a close proximity to one of the largest cities outside of New York in the state. 

One of the harsh parts of living in upstate NY is weather. Massive snowstorms and frigid temperatures are commonplace near Lake Erie and Lake Ontario. Despite growing up with it, I never quite came around to loving or even liking it. One too many times freezing in my car in the morning waiting for the frost to disappear from the windshield I guess. 

A consequence of this reaction to the cold was where I ended up attending university. I applied all over the country, but somehow chose the furthest place away without leaving the country: Hawaii. I attended Hawaii Pacific University, which is a small private school located in downtown Honolulu and I have not regretted it to this day. 

The weather was a vast improvement for a while, but I missed autumn and spring eventually. The leaves changing and the air growing crisper are two of the greatest natural wonders in my opinion. I just wish it wouldn’t turn into cutting cold and icy roads. 

While at HPU, I was able to take advantage of studying abroad for two semesters and spending another in Washington D.C. I studied in southern France in the fall of 2005 at the European-American Institute of Technology. My friend Dane accompanied me on this adventure and we both lived in an apartment in the small town of Juan Les Pins, which conveniently rests between Cannes and Nice. The experience was unforgettable as I was able to travel extensively throughout Western Europe, learn French (somewhat at least), and make lifelong friends. 

Directly following France, I jetted off to New Zealand where I spent a semester at the University of Auckland. While different than the experience in France, it was an amazing time and remains my favorite country to date. The blend of adventure, scenery, hospitality and good tasting beer is rarely rivaled.  

I may be biased to New Zealand in another respect, because that is where I met my girlfriend Kristin Maclay. We had been friends for almost the whole experience and unfortunately did not begin dating until the semester was almost finished, but we are still together to this day. My plans had to change a few times for me to even be in New Zealand, but meeting Kristin makes me never regret any decision I made. She and I make such a great team because we share similar passions, have adopted interests from the other, and always feel comfortable in the company of each other.

Kristin and I had to endure two years of distance between Blacksburg (Virginia Tech) and Honolulu, not so short of a distance. But we survived and are stronger because of it. Upon graduating from HPU, I sailed right off to graduate school at the London School of Economics, where I studied Global Politics; Kristin came over with me to begin her career as a Market Researcher. LSE was an amazing experience; being able to have discussions with such smart and intelligent people was truly humbling. 

Unfortunately, the market took a dip (understatement I know) right when I began grad school. Upon graduation, the job market was bleak and especially difficult to work in a country not your own. I eventually moved back to the DC area where I had a temporary job. 

London was a fantastic place and sits at my second favorite city in the world (can’t beat Auckland). I would move back in a second if I could as it provides so many attractive qualities for a city. London is often categorized for having dreary weather. While it is true that winters can be glum, when there are sunny days they are difficult to beat. A walk in Holland Park or along the Thames is something that just cannot be rivalled anywhere else. 

I am now living in the Washington D.C. area, another fantastic city. I work for a law firm at the moment as I apply for positions in fields relating to international relations and politics.
