8 Comments 19 July 2011

Have you ever worked so long and hard on something that you forgot what you were doing or why you were doing it? The idea of the Mongol Rally for me started back in June 2010; that’s when I found some teammates that agreed to come with me. Ever since then I’ve been working on [...]

25 Comments 31 August 2010

Saying goodbye…

16 Comments 06 July 2010

In Memorandum – Saying goodbye to a dear friend My throat immediately tightened and my swallowing became slow and laborious.

19 Comments 22 June 2010

This week, my virtual life is going to collide with my physical life…and I’m a bit nervous. Will it be a supernova or a black hole? What if the physical me isn’t as interesting and likeable as the virtual me? This weekend in New York City not only will the city be welcoming gay men [...]
