Fighter’s Cup

I participated in my very first Fighter’s Cup tournament yesterday and took second.  This is what semi-knockdown karate looks like; I never thought I’d be doing something like this; I just wanted to be a ninja with my son. But this is where the road leads in traditional Japanese Kyokushin Karate and so しょうがない as […]

Airbnb Headquarters Lobby

Standing in the Airbnb headquarters lobby made me want to kick of my shoes and take a nap!  The rooms in the background are modeled on Airbnb locations throughout the world.  Pretty cool!

GoPro Formula One

I was over at GoPro today and it looks like I didn’t get the job for their Formula One driver.  This new guy is a much better fit for the position.

ABG Pride Dinner

Avis Budget Group Pride Dinner with America’s Senior Leadership Team in recognition of contributions to the company. It was totally unexpected but I won an award for my work mentoring new team members, covering vacant territories and keeping a portfolio that continues to grow year over year.
