• Book: The Manager’s Path

    Early in my job hunt, I came across a “local” role as a Quality Manager. It was advertised as still involving some IC work so it seemed like a great way to test the waters of management.

  • One Day Diet, one week later

    Last week, I published my first app. I had spent about five hours on it. It worked, but usability was poor, and functionality was limited, but I really only intended it for my own use. Well, a few people have used it, and I’m a bit of a perfectionist. Since release, it has more or […]

  • 2023 Year In Review

    2023 Year In Review

    A relatively stable one! We stayed in one home, didn’t spawn any more children, and I almost held a job through the year. Much of the year was spent in typical “parenting toddler” auto-pilot. Wake up at the crack of dawn, get them to school, work our butts off until pickup time, have dinner, put […]
