About

This life is an adventure, and i strive to cherish every moment of it.  Through the years, I’ve worked in the NYC motion picture industry, motorcycled much of the continental United States, flown airplanes, almost crashed airplanes, started companies, had companies fail, married and had children, had a failed marriage, and got back up with lessons learned from life’s greatest teacher: failure.

Today, I’m married to a nurse who is awesome, have two amazing children, and coach innovation and design at Trig.  We enjoy all that Raleigh has to offer (great restaurants, breweries, bakeries, music, and art), and when I have some time, reflect this life on paper.

Thank you for letting me share this with you.
