I wonder if you could take a tour of the heavy presses left running?

High performance website consulting, tree house builder, dad
I'm a tech geek, and quite proud of it. If I could start a second career it would be building houses, tree houses, chicken coops, you name it. I like building things.
In my day-to-day life, I'm a CTO and specialize in high performance websites. My background is software development (4 patents in search technology), but I really like working more in the devops land. I enjoy discussing architectures, standing up servers, installing memory and in general helping people get their jobs done.

Awesome coffee, kinda funky little shop, but the coffee is outstanding. If you like a dark roast, you have to try the Elbow Grease.

I have spent a considerable amount of time learning how to train dogs, and have graduated from the Michael Ellis School for Dog Trainers through Advanced Obedience 2 (the highest obedience level). However, when we added the third working-level German Shepherd Dog to our pack, I was overwhelmed. Techniques that had worked in the past for my other two GSDs were simply not working for our newest member, Adede. Her temperament evaluation came back and I was told that she was going to be an extremely "sharp" dog. I contemplated returning her to the breeder, as I wasn't sure how I was going to manage her. At nine months of age I knew that I was going to need expert help if I was going to keep her, and so I chose David Broderick from Innovative K9 Academy based on his stellar reputation for dealing with challenging dogs and his success with his own sport dog, Idole du Loups du Soleil. After talking through some of our issues, I shipped Adede from California to Utah for 9 weeks of intensive sport dog training and socialization. I arrived in Utah 8 weeks later for a seminar with David. To be honest, I wasn't exactly sure what to expect. For lack of a better word, let me just say WOW. Not only did David help to smooth out many of Adede's quirks, he had her doing things that would have taken me well over a year to accomplish on my own (jumps, position changes, retrieve, etc). When I first saw her clear the meter jump, and witnessed her focus and determination during bite work, I was THRILLED. David is simply a miracle worker and my feelings of despair have now turned to determination. With the foundation work that David has laid, and with his continued support and encouragement, I now believe that Adede will be able to compete at a very high level. He is a gifted motivational trainer and I can't imaging ever using anyone else but him for board and train. This was by far one of the best training investments I have ever made and I would highly recommend him for both pet and sport dog training. He exceed ALL of my expectations and more.

I've used Country Club Cleaners every week for over a year now, and they're fantastic - fast, reliable, and friendly. Sae has been great to work with and she always has a smile. I get my shirts boxed, and I'm always impressed with the quality of the folds - very consistent and neat. They have also done some minor tailoring for me, and they are really fast, with high quality. I highly recommend Country Club Cleaners.
