Welcome to my digital diary and career story. Here you will find a collection of some of my favorite images, thoughts, and works. There is so little time and so much left to be accomplished here. My experience has spanned many fields over the years. I count them all as successes because of the profit of knowledge I have learned and the great and not so great people I have met in them. By the way, I love to hunt, train Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, design things, photography and spend time with my family.
