I’m floating above the clouds. Above Earth’s cotton blanket effortlessly scooting through the sky like it’s no big deal. Here at 10,000 feet it seems nothing can bother me. Trees and beautiful houses pepper the landscape as I coast away from the Connecticut backdrop that’s been so familiar my entire life.
Ever been here? ^
We’ve heard it before. The familiar phrases: struggling artist, struggling new business owner, unnoticed blogger, battling against the odds. Someone mentions following an unfamiliar path and immediately the peanut gallery is quick to submit an opinion on why it’s not a good idea. There are clearly much safer [...]
Growing up I was lucky to have the opportunity to build strong relationships with people without the risk of having them stolen away. Being in the same neighborhood and school system from kindergarten to high school graduation gives you plenty of time to really know and understand the people in your life, as well as [...]
With 2008 upon us, it seems now would be as appropriate a time as any for us to take just a few minutes to take a step back. A step back to reflect on our lives up to this point, think about how we handled 2007 and prepare for the year ahead.

Here you stand on the brink of a new opportunity. A new beginning, an open door, an endless possibility.

Mind remains stainless even through times of anguish

Find a job, go to school, get to the library
Then to witness grueling examples of how life is temporary.

As I wander, I write, I think, I feel, I experience, I remember and I forget. I capture, I record, I learn, I try to understand and help understand. Obstacles surround me just as they surround all of us. Holding us back, pushing us down and separating us to all different sides. But there is no sense in over-complicating this situation; over-analyzing it until the mere thought of its existence causes one to do nothing at all to avoid confronting these obstacles head on.
I owe it all to you
This website is dedicated to family. To my loving and trusting parents, who have guided me, believed in me and supported me in everything I have ever done. And to my only brother Tim, the complex minded visionary that welcomed me into a new way of thinking that teaches and helps me to grow every day of my life.
My appreciation is beyond anything I could ever explain.
