I’ve been doing a bunch of speaking lately.
The time away from home is never easy, but it is a sacrifice I’m willing to make in order to provide for my family. Plus, if I’m being honest, I love being on stage.Pin It
Any piece of technology that makes getting work done easier is one that I’ll love.
For years I’ve bought and been impressed with products from Plantronics. Since my iPhone is also my office phone, I’ve always had a Bluetooth headset so that I could talk and easily use my computer at the same time.Pin It
Never forget that we don’t need a map to find our way.
Yesterday, as I took my camera for a walk along the coast of Victoria, British Columbia I had no purpose beyond enjoying every minute of it.
Before I left I had looked at a map to get a general idea of where I was headed and where I might end up, but then I just went.
When was the last time you committed some time to yourself to wander and wonder?
Make the time. It will reinvigorate both your mind and body.Pin It
Yesterday, I had to go into the city to speak at MUSE 2013, so I hit the road early with the plan to walk over and visit the Boston Marathon Memorial.
Laura and I had been at the finish line two days before the Marathon, but I had yet to see the memorial and felt it was my duty to do so before it is gone (if it ever goes).
I wasn’t fully prepared for the wave of emotions. The mix of sadness tinged with anger and a heaping of local pride. While I knew it would be a solemn walk with my camera, it was one that had to be taken.
New Englanders are a tough lot. We don’t go down easy and we are there to help our neighbor whenever they need us. Reading the notes, seeing the signed shoes, running medals, police patches and every Boston area logo imaginable all together to help our city grieve is something you have to see to fully appreciate.Pin It
While it may be snowing in parts of the country, for most of us spring has sprung and many an hour will be spent cleaning up our yards, homes and offices.
This is also the time of year that I always spend time cleaning out my feeds, friends and follows.
Here is my personal approach to social media spring cleaning. Hope it helps you.Pin It
For their first birthday, they asked some of their supporters to profile some of their active Shot@Life Champions and I have the pleasure of introducing you to Priya Desai. She is the young lady on the left hand side of the photo.
A year ago today I stepped off a plane in Accra, Ghana to spend five days in a country I knew very little about, but that would change my life forever.
The ONE Campaign invited me to witness the country-wide rollout of two important vaccines that would change the lives of the children of the country.Pin It
As I tucked Dylan into bed last night I could tell he wasn’t in the mood to go to sleep yet. After a week of vacation, I knew he needed it and would pass out immediately but he was stalling.
“So how was your week?”
I paused for a moment and responded, “Absolutely horrible buddy.”Pin It
Instead of writing today, I decided to power up the microphone and hit record.
I’m doing my best to remain #BostonStrong and I encourage everyone to do the same today.
Make it a great one.Pin It
With all the horrible things that have happened here in Boston and around the world this week, I thought we could all use a minute of peace.

School vacation week means that I rarely travel and I keep my calendar light so that if the family and I want to do something we can.
Clarence and I had planned on taking Tuesday to go out and shoot photos. We didn’t know what, where or why but we hadn’t taken a day like that in a long time so we locked it in.
Then the attack on the Boston Marathon happened. We pondered going into the city, but as we sat at the counter of a local diner eating our bacon and making plans, he mentioned getting as far away from the city as possible. I couldn’t agree more.Pin It
How do we react at a time like this? When once again we are reminded that no day should be taken for granted and that bad things happen in every corner of the world.
The news is still breaking, details emerging, numbers rising.
I’m only writing because I can’t stand to watch another second of the news and the endless loops of the same videos. I can’t stand to hit refresh on my Twitter account. To see people already pointing fingers, making gross assumptions and don’t even get me going on the stream of autotweets and non human interactions.Pin It
My past two days were spent at the offices and in the studios of Treehouse.
Yesterday, they announced a new round of $7 million in funding.
Sure, the timing was pure coincidence, but the teaching by Team Treehouse and their approach to business left me truly inspired.Pin It

Spring has begun to arrive in New England and the dark cobwebs of winter will begin to be shook out of the gray matter with each breeze of fresh air I feel on my face.
The woods that hug our property are currently a tangle of brush and trees that soon will be covered in an assortment of leaves. No longer will you see the mess that they are today, but rather they will be transformed into a beautiful wall of all that is good in nature.
As goes the woods, so goes my mind, mood and mental. These days are always dark, confusing and a bit of a mess. The calendar flips and these torment filled hours arrive. It takes a few before I remember that it is commonplace, my normal and that it will pass. Yet, in the midst of this forest of the unknown it always scares me a bit as I try to find my way out.Pin It
