Go MARINERS

Spur of the moment my girlfriend called me up and asked if I wanted to go to the baseball game. I’m not sure why, but anytime someone asks me something like this, no matter who it is, I go into an analytical mode. Do I have time…. Will we have fun…. How much work do … More Go MARINERS

India Trip ’09

Back in 2009, while still in college, an opportunity presented itself, which would send myself, and 20-30 other students to India to do HIV/Aids education.

Power of Habits

I just finished reading this book, “The Power of Habit,” which if you haven’t read I HIGHLY suggest reading it.
