My life is a carefully choreographed series of to-do lists. My to-dos on any given day are long enough to give even the most stalwart of to-doers pause, and only gets done through a strict daily application of effort and productivity that I have… well, not exactly perfected. But cobbled together in a fashion that … Read more

POINT OF VIEW: When the Future is Gray

May you live in interesting times. It’s an old, oft-quoted curse (though probably NOT of Chnese origin) that turns something good on its head and makes it something decidedly bad.

I’m an asshole. But we’ll get back to that in a minute. I won four Rainbow Awards on Saturday night. I should have been over the moon, right? But here’s the thing. Every one of them was a second place finish. In 2017, I won a bunch of them too. Also ALL second place wins. … Read more

Sometimes life doesn’t work out like you hoped. Such was the case for me this year with Pitch Wars, the mentoring contest I entered a couple months back. I was so excited going in. I found some awesome mentors to pitch to, including one team that had a member right here in Sacramento – perfect, … Read more
