Right now, I spend my working hours speaking to talented engineers AND running a marketing team at Apptegy. Much of my day is spent talking to people about software engineering, branding, and high growth.

As 2021 ends, I'm working to move away from productivity increases to working with others to grow, scale, and lead an organization. For me, this is a sea change as I move from my own productivity wins to aiming to make an entire team and org grow their productivity and effectiveness.

To do that, I try (and often fail) at being intentional about how my days start and end. Journaling is something I've never done consistently. But, I see the need and power it can have to reflect on each day and start the next with defined intention. It's a also a key part of stoicism which is something I'm exploring right now. Somewhere on Reddit I read a comment that said without journaling stoicism is just entertainment.

To do that, I've created space. I wake up earlier than I ever have and sit down with a book over green tea. And most nights, I sit by my bookshelf and read again, taking notes, and listening to minimal piano.

As I get older, I am more comfortable with just being and don't feel the need to DO all the time. At times, that seems like a terrifying and lazy concept, but it's one I'm letting myself embrace for now.

The most important part of my life now and for the next 20 years are my kids. Spending time with them, drawing trash trucks, playing Rummikub, teaching them to love reading, and teaching them how to think are the highlight of every day. As much as I love working and driving towards a goal, I want to use the energy and momentum I build at work to pour into my kids.

This is a Now page. Now pages are inspired by Derek Sivers. It is similar to an about page, but it tells you what I am doing now (how I am spending my time and what I am focused on)— not just what I have done in the past. This entire site is inspired with that in mind.
