nothing else in the world. The excitement. The energy. The learning
until you feel like your mind is melting away and the only thing

I have started and worked at a bunch of 'em now. I have a couple of
apps in the AppStore, and many more on the way as I write

Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My friends and Family
I spend a lot of time thinking about

Working, adventuring, exploring some new speakeasy, doing something
