As the dad of a bunch of multisport athletes, I came to realize that one way of looking at their careers is as a sequence of accidents and injuries. The latest: My oldest Hanna had a crash in the Chico Stage (Bicycle) Race this weekend. Don't worry, she's fine (didn't even need stitches) and is still competing.

It's raining, it's pouring on the Peninsula! Since I have nothing better to do on this Sunday, I decided to write a short blog on LinkedIn Pulse about a new (and as of yet undocumented) LinkedIn feature I recently discovered.
Recommendations are among the most valuable assets you can have on your LinkedIn profile.The big issue with recommendationsMy LinkedIn profile has more than 70 recommendations, and I am very grateful for each and every one of them. However, up until recently, I have had mixed feelings about some new recommendations that ‘replaced’ an older one that was either written by a well-known titan of the industry or one that was simply more flattering tha...

How is translating a user manual different from translating, say an article in a trade journal, and what do translation buyers and linguists need to do to ensure high quality and short turnaround times in 'product-centric' translation projects? Find some of the answers here: http://owl.li/IDBZU

With Carmel's unseasonably high temperatures (73°F/22°C) during the day, we thought a bonfire on the beach might be in order this evening.

Barack Obama has one, Marissa Mayer has one - and I do, too: A customized public LinkedIn profile URL. A typical LinkedIn public profile URL looks something like https:// www.linkedin.com /pub/your-name/46/580/49b. It only takes a few clicks to change this URL into https://www.linkedin.com /in/yourname. Provided it is available, you can change your URL into (almost) any string of characters between 5 and 30 letters or numbers in length. Here are instructions how to do it: http://owl.li/HjF1x

For those of you who are on Twitter: I just sent my 37000th tweet about translation-/localization-related opportunities (mainly jobs and events). And by the way: I research and write each tweet myself (and I'm not getting paid for it, either). http://owl.li/Jl0TK

Google+ tells me that my profile has had approx. 60000 views, but what Google doesn't tell me is where my followers are located. Take a page out of Twitter's book, Google+! Twitter Analytics gives me detailed geolocation data - for free! That's how I know that 3/4 of my followers on Twitter live outside of the U.S. http://owl.li/IFD5G

This was my second time running a race in Death Valley, and again, it's been an out-of-this-world experience!

Wow, that was fast: Less than 24 hours after LinkedIn posted a job announcement for a Terminologist position, they stopped accepting applications! owl.li/I6pp2

As a former corporate terminologist, I think this position would have been very rewarding for anyone with an interest in terminology management.

Story
Tagline
Lives and breathes translation tools and processes, is in it for the long run (literally)
Introduction
I have re-invented myself many times over the course of my professional career: Truck Driver, Life Guard, Photographer, English Teacher, Creative Writer, Advertising Consultant, Translator, College Professor, Salesperson, Program Manager, Consultant to Fortune 500 organizations. What's next? Anything is possible! 
Bragging rights
Crossed the Alps on foot (GR 5 route from Lake Geneva to the Mediterranean) in 26 days. Ran my fastest marathon in 3:32h. Have mastered the art of circular breathing (inhaling and exhaling at the same time). Biggest accomplishment: Raising three daughters (at times single-handedly!), and even so they have turned out alright.
