“Comedy can be a cathartic way to deal with personal trama”

I knew the ending, and thought I knew the middle. I was wrong. Robin Williams wasn’t depressed, he was sick. His disease kept him from thinking clearly, from his normal thoughts. His success was widespread – his comedy too natural and engaging to turn away from.

A must see!


Anotha One

After a too short visit to Chicago, felt like I never left as Eric made a return to The Grand Canyon State. Started Friday the right way; with a live rodeo from Buffalo Chip Saloon in Cave Creek, AZ.A now committed golfer, I convinced Eric to partake in the First Annual Idiot Open. We (Conner and I) ended up beating Nick & Eric’s best score ever.
Some dinners, a night out in Scottsdale…..make it permanent, Eric!

Chicago Return; a work story

Big shout to @AA-ISP and @Ziprecruiter for an impressive weekend of sales best practice sharing and networking. Held at the Hilton Grand on the river, the 3 day event featured some of the best thought leaders in the space. Wasn’t a bad opportunity to connect with old friends either.

Dinner night 1 with the work team; Viaggio’s on Madison
2liveCrew featuring Uncle Cecil, Eric, Joaj, J-Kwon, and Walker. And myself. Live from The East Room.
Night 2 with Adam, Wes, and Kyle at The Salt Shaker.¬†Mix in some oysters from Shaw’s, a stop at the Victory Lap HQ, and of course, now..in April..and the Chicago trip is complete.

Mom’s Easter Visit!

When you can’t make it home for the holidays – and we take Easter seriously – the next best option is to bring home to you. A big thanks to my mom for coming out at the end of March to warm up and enjoy a great weekend.

We sure did a lot; from hiking, eating, to baseball, we got a full glimpse of an AZ March.

A hot day hike through the Phoenix Mountain Preserve
