“Whether to float with the tide, or to swim for a goal. It is a choice we must all make consciously or unconsciously at one time in our lives.” – HST

Think of this as a primer on my day-to-day existence and priorities.

  • Being an involved Dad and Husband. It’s my highest priority, always.
  • Living in San Diego and working in academic technology at SDSU.
  • Establishing a better work-life balance, not working for “fun”.
  • Simplifying my existence. Saying no more often. Getting rid of stuff.
  • Practicing meditation and being mindful about actions and surroundings.
  • Giving back to the community. Coaching, mentoring, and volunteering.
  • Being outdoors. Hiking, camping, beachgoing, geocaching, biking to work.
