Boy are my arms tired.


I just got back from a week in Central America. Amazing. The people, the food and the vistas were all over the top. It would take me days to explain the whole trip in detail but I'll post up a few adventures as soon as I get the pictures all sorted out. I can't believe how much I fought going down there. Now, after the experience I can't wait to go back.

I was truly trying to run from something I could never escape. More on that later....

!hasta` pronto!

Back from the darkside....

Been a long time...


We talk everyday (most days twice) and I still feel so far away. How do you explain to a someone so small, how much love I have in my heart for you? I try everyday to keep you close. I pray everyday that as you grow older you will appreciate the effort that both your mother and I make.

I promise to keep posting.

Always thinking of you,

Tick Tock Tick Tick Tick......

It's been a hectic week. I've completed a project that included a roll out to over 79 different countries, a 4 day conference in Orlando (more of that to be posted), two 3 hour road trips, and if I look hard enough a possible partridge in a pear tree. Needless to say it's been an awesome experience. OK, so working 61 out of 72 hours and then driving to Orlando was rough but it has been worth it.

A little something about your Daddy's job; it's insane. It's hard to explain what I do in terms that most understand:

First, I am a consultant. I advise our clients on best practices, new inventive ideas on how to use our system, and I am always on call 24/7. When I say global, I really mean all the way around the world.

Second, I am a project manager. I over see the projects I am assigned to, review specs / process, set/ manage expectations, and maintain time lines.

Third, I am expected to wear every hat that anyone work with me does. What this means is that i have to be able to perform any task I ask of anyone else in the office. This just ensures that I can make the deadlines happen.

Fourth, I am an analyst. I get analyze problems and come up with inventive ways to overcome obstacles. This is my favorite part of the job. It's like being a "code detective".

lastly, I am (try to be) a friend. I work in a very virtual world. I can literally go weeks with out actually coming face to face with a person. So it is very important to me that I can be a friend and involved with more than just work around the office. There are a quite a few friends that I have come to depend on. We make a great team and can do the impossible daily. People bring us their hardest problems in hopes we can help. How awesome is that?

My day to day is hectic but dull to normal people and I will save you the small details. However Sarah, you must know, I can do all of this because of you. My life is ruled by dates and times and there is never enough of either. I can hear the clock ticking mixing with the tribal beat of passion every day. I love as hard as I work and it is expressed in the outcome each and every time. I cannot keep from using my heart in my work. I hope you have the same "problem". Living, loving, praying, playing. Sarah, it's how we do it.

Take care and I will post on Disney soon. Keep an eye on the mail. there is a surprise for you coming.

All my love,

A letter to my daughter...

Dearest Sarah,

These days are long without you. I am working on ways for us to be closer even though we do not see each other everyday. Your mom has done a great job ensuring we get to speak twice a day. Be sure to hug your Mommy for showing you how much she cares and for helping us stay close.

I have been planning this site for a while. I want to tell you stories of life here. I will post up pics and stories for you to read. I hope you enjoy reading these as much I enjoy creating them for you. I will warn you now. Some stories may not be entirely true... Ask your Mom about me and my imagination. It's a gift you and I share.

All My Love,
