    Cascais, PT

    I tried surfing at Guincho Beach in Cascais, Portugal. I feel like I did a pretty terrible job, but Kat and Elly were awesome. The scenery and waves could not be beat!

    Halle, DE

    After quite a travel ordeal we made it to Leipzig, Germany and then over to Halle. Here’s a picture of us in front of the Handel statue in Halle to prove it. In Halle they’re very proud of Handel. In Leipzig they go nuts over Bach and Goethe. Every city has their famous person. I…

    NOC Runnaversary

    Kat and I met at the Fullsteam Run Club in Durham on June 3rd. That makes this our runnaversary. We try to do something outdoorsy in spirit of this tradition. The most recent trip was the Nanthahala Outdoor Center for rafting and mountain biking. We had an excellent time as you can see from the…

    Croatia Cruise and Cycling Vacation

    Kat and I had a covid-delayed trip to Croatia booked for quite some time. The tour company and airline allowed us to push the trip back from our original 2020 date. We signed up for two weeks in Croatia – with one week spent on a boat – getting dropped off at idyllic cycling locations.…

  • Things You Won’t Learn on My LinkedIn Profile

    I had to do a little introduction exercise when I moved over to the marketing team as a Tech Marketing Engineer. I had to share some things you wouldn’t learn on my LinkedIn Profile with the team. I thought it was fun to walk through and worth reposting here! I just married the woman of…

  • Memorial Day Ziplining in Florida

    I decided to make it a 4 day weekend for Memorial day on the Tuesday before the weekend started. I checked my family’s availability for Saturday, booked tickets for a zip line tour in Florida, took Friday off, then drove down to Florida on Friday. I had a little bit of a stop in Jacksonville…
