I think the best birthday present would be getting a job. Still looking for a position doing the back end/ managing sales. If anyone knows of a good job opening in New York, please let me know. It's all about who you know these days. Need to capitalize on that. :)

So far, I've got a couple of unfinished short stories kicking around. One of these days I'm going to finish them off.

Had the incredible +Dan Patterson on “Quest for Peace” where we discussed how to be driven while trying to be happy, how upbringing can bring about change, and why failure is your friend.

  • Dad since 2010
  • I've lived on the east coast all my life until 2011

Dairydell is a fantastic place for dogs. Everyone is super-friendly and their training is top notch. Dairydell took my two rambunctious labradors and helped them become closer to model dogs.
