Conner’s First Flag

I’ve stated it before, but my favorite thing about living in Phoenix is likely Flagstaff – which is a solid 2 hours north of Phoenix. Having this ~40 degree cooler maven within a morning’s drive makes the 120+ days that much more manageable. Took Conner up for a glorious hike (with a bit of unpredicted offroading) through the Inner Basin trail of Mount Humphrey’s.

Left early to get up there, packed for the day, hiked a 4 hour 7 miler, beers @ Mother Road, dinner @ The Tinder Box, a few @ Haunted Monte V’s, then some scenic routes on the way home in the AM. If Flagstaff is not on your list, now it is.


1517 E Roosevelt St

Been done moved back to Phoenix. This time it’s….

Settled in #DTPHX, within the historic confines of the Garfield District.

Big ups to Steve F (if you need a realtor let me know) for helping me find this gem. Everything the kid could ask for; newly remodeled, with some swag, simplistic take, in a mid-century white on white. Thanks to everyone who’s helped get me here, hoped for me to get here, watched me get here, or now know I’ve gotten here. #MCWest

Tools of Titans

I’ve been away. Crazy how busy life becomes when you move to a new(ish) city, start a new job, and buy a house. Haven’t posted in longer than I’d like, so thought I’d start with where my mind has been as of late.

Hammered through Tim Ferrriss’ Tools of Titans, a must read for really anyone, but especially for those who are fans of slight life augmentations and overall efficiency. Broken into three parts (healthy, wealthy, wise) it’s a much easier read than the 700 page face value.

Too many anecdotes to speak to, but the ~$25 cost is well worth it if only for a coffee table read. I’d recommend starting with Laird Hamilton’s piece.



Ziprecruiter, LA Week

Started my career at Ziprecruiter, coming in as the Director of Inside Sales in the Phoenix office. I was welcomed with arms wide open, beginning my week at a Leadership Summit led by our CEO describing the rocketship we’re on, and where we’re riding it to. Ended the week participating in Zipgames, filled with fun in the canyons of Calabassas. Caught my first ever Dodgers game, and just had to sit in the all you can eat hotdogs/nachos/peanut section. 
Ended the week at The Buffalo Club with Big Cat and crew, closing the evening with a few pops w/ LD. 

Congrats to Ryan and Alexa Herits

The little big guy. HD, known to most as Ryan Herits, celebrated his love in king sized fashion. The entire weekend was glorious, topped off by the wedding most can’t even dream of. Huge thanks to the Tonis and Herits families. No real way to describe the feelings you have when you watch one of your best friends marry the woman of his dreams right in front of you.  #RandAwedtoday #MC

Your First Place NYY

Good to be on top again. We’re still a few weeks away from the All Star Break, but this team is outperforming anyone’s expectations. Half game up on the Sox, the baby bombers are combining power hitting, lengthy starter outings, and clutch performances to put together a cinderella esque start to the season.

Aaron Judge is taking the glory as he certainly deserves. But outside of his monstrous (and fast – which is so stupid to track/promote) homeruns, it’s the middle of the infield that I see deserving the credit. Sterlin and Didi both batting .315 with good pop. Their paths haven’t been easy, and with CC and Chase’s leadership, I don’t see this trend stopping.
