Au Revoir San Francisco, I’m Moving to San Diego

So right now I’m vacationing with my family in the Florida Keys. The following week I fly to New York City to go to WeWork Summer Camp and visit Keith and the Girl. I then fly directly to Texas for work meetings and get this, on August 31 I move to San Diego.

That’s right. I’m giving up the cold blanket of fog for the warm sunshine of America’s Finest City. Starting September 1, all things going as planned, I’ll be moved into my new home and starting work a couple of days later.

If you feel taken aback by this news rest assured you’re not alone. Three weeks ago I’d never have even thought twice about moving to San Diego. I’d never even been to San Diego! Then, seemingly out of nowhere, an incredible job opportunity opened up. I jokingly responded something like, “Oh if only I lived in San Diego!” and then boom, two weeks later I’m in San Diego on interview six or eleven (depending on how we’re counting). Continue reading

My Florida Travels Overview

So the last ten days or so have been pretty crazy. It all started with a flight from San Francisco to Austin on the ninth. There I prepared for a series of meetings with business connections and hopefully potential opportunities for new business. Those meetings were to be had in San Antonio, so shortly after arriving in the Austin area I was headed out. Continue reading

Catching up on a few things

I was thinking today about how much I have to catch people up on. Even though my life isn’t super exciting or anything, I often put out these quick short stories and get so distracted that I never follow up on them. So here we go. Continue reading

Goodbye Saudi Arabia

We went to the dunes on Patrick’s (my brother) last day in Saudi Arabia. It was pretty awesome. Camels came up to use right as we were leaving and the sky was awesome.

I’m about to make my own voyage back to America, in just an hour or so. From Saudi Arabia to Bahrain (wish me luck…) from Bahrain to Frankfurt Germany, from Frankfurt to San Francisco.

Catch you guys later! A lot to catch you up on, tons of photos and adventures to share!

We Made it to Flagstaff

It was a long drive from Oklahoma City yesterday morning, but we made it to Flagstaff Arizona right on schedule. Also, right as the snow began to fall. Great timing. I swear, these were the biggest snow flakes I had ever seen!

So much drama preceded this trip just hours before I was supposed to leave. Drama including a missing moving truck…

But all of that will come to light after I’m in San Francisco and unpacked! Until then, it’s time to get back on the road. See you in California!

I’m Moving Back to California

While it might be the worst kept secret, ever, I wanted to give myself time to tell each of my friends (as best I could) the news face to face before posting it here on the web. But, yes, I am moving to back to California, and quite soon. In fact, as of this writing, I have roughly 21 days left of life in Missouri before I head west to the Golden State.
