Emerging From A Break In Writing

Wow.  February 3rd, 2015 was my last post.

Most readers will know I have been consistently posting on this blog for about 4 years – we’ll 3 and a half due to the 6 month break noted above.  For some reason, around February this year I hit the skids.  I don’t know what really happened or what was the reason for the break but simply put sometimes we just need a break from things we do on a regular basis.

About a year ago I took a full-time position as Director of Business Development at Knotis, a startup here in Seattle.  It’s been a fun year full of lots of meetings and getting to fully embrace a whole new vision and business direction.  Couple that with the Bitcoin related company called Coinme I helped get started last year and my schedule definitely started to get full by end of summer.

So suffice it to say I have been a busy guy.

Add to all of this a year-long relationship with a great woman and now you can see why I might have gotten a bit burnt out on things.  In the end, my writing took the hit.

So here I am, getting back into it and finally getting a post out after thinking “Damn, I need to start writing again.  I’m not exactly sure as to what I will post, hopefully similar things to what the last 3 years have been all about.  But until then, I’ll post a few pictures from my last 6 months to show you what I have been up to.

My Dad came to Seattle to visit myself and my sister in early June.  Here we are chilin’ with two of my nephews.

I went to Austin for a weekend getaway, and rode a water hover-board.  (That’s not me but I did ride it!)

I had the awesome opportunity to go to the U.S. Open when it was held at Chambers Bay in Washington.
