What I'm Up to Now

I have no goals or plans, right now. So I am creating space in my life to figure those out. With the global pandemic in full swing, the world is telling me its time to slow down and be intentional about what comes next.

I'm trying to figure out how I want the next stage of my career to look. Likely something higher level than consulting. And I'd love to work in investments again. I spent all those years studying the markets, valuation, spreadsheets and financial modes. I would love to put that to use.

Are you working on something cool? I've got the time.

My wife and I decided to spend some time in San Diego. We were married this year in La Jolla and love the area so much we wanted to move out here for a while. I left the consulting firm I was working with at the end of 2019. So, our time in SoCal is coming to an end.

I just finished a 6 month culinary training program as part of a self-paid sabbatical. It was an amazing experience. Hundreds of hours, dozens and dozens of dishes and way too much knowledge of cooking. The final exam was 250 questions and was supposed to take 4 hours! But I'm so thankful I finished it.

I'm training to do more cycling, perhaps much longer rides. While I'm on the west coast, the weather is perfect to cycle year round. I recently picked up a gravel bike and can't wait to break it in.

My wife and I want to use my love of cooking and cycling as avenues of travel. Not sure how, still trying to figure that out.

If you could help with any of these things, I would greatly appreciate it. Please reach out.
