    There’s no doubt about it; 2023 was objectively way better than 2022. And 2021. And 2020. Our family has been through a lot over the last 5-ish years, and I’m happy to report that 2023 contained no major medical emergencies, […]

    A pattern is emerging: even years are nightmare years. 2018 was a nightmare year. 2020 was a real fucking nightmare year. And now 2022 was a nightmare year. 2022 was a year of death, organizing chaos, once again putting our […]

    Throughout 2017, when people asked how I was doing, I’d say “Great…for the things I can control.” 2017 was a rough year at a macro level for everybody, and I found myself coping with the state of the world in […]

    2014 was an eventful year. It was my second year out on my own running my own business and settling into life in Pittsburgh. It also brought along a few bumps in the road too. First, here are the numbers: […]

    On the first day of 2013 I took the big leap into the land of self-employment. I’m about to celebrate one year out on my own, so I thought I’d share how things are going. First, the numbers: Launched 2 […]
