I live almost exactly half way between Philadelphia and Allentown in a great rural area that gives me amazing access to nature while still being close to ‘civilization’. I’m happily married with two 11 year old boys.
I’m an active National rank beer judge who enjoys sampling all of the great beers that this area of Pennsylvania has to offer. I’m really into experimenting with cooking awesome things on my Traeger grill.
I’m an avid fan of the indigenous people of the Americas… particularly the Maya and the various tribes that historically lived in the area where I now live. I take every opportunity I can to visit any spots where Archaeoastronomy is evident.
I’m an avid hiker and I always try to hike the most recommended trails wherever I find myself. If you know of any great spots that I need to hit, please let me know!
I love foraging and gardening and try to improve my skills in both of these areas constantly.
I’m currently training in calisthenics with the focus on increasing my mobility. I’m continuing my multi year trend of time restricted feeding and quantifying everything I do. I keep an updated blog post that discusses my daily rituals.
This is my main gig now. I do whatever is necessary on any given day, but my big focus right now is building out a capability to customize our products. My personal mission is to continue sourcing products from and supporting companies that manufacture locally using sustainable practices. There is always room for improvement in this area.
Most of my software and consulting work now is in the eCommerce space. I have been taking many of the lessons learned growing and running Threddies and creating products and services based on these best practices. I’m a small business advocate and have been working with several local business owners to improve their offerings. I’m a proud member of the Anti-Amazon Alliance and if you give me 10 minutes, I’ll discuss all of the relevant reasons why you might want to consider joining also. If you are interested in working with me in this area, please reach out and let me know!
Just about every other project I blog about on this site.
