World, meet Brooke. I love this woman. This picture was taken during one of the happiest times in my life, the week we got engaged. We spent a week in North Carolina along the coast. Wild horses, dolphins, everything. Although I have known her for many years, I feel like that week was the very beginning for us. And it's getting better every day.
When it comes to football, there is only one team. The Oakland Raiders. People spew a lot of garbage about them to me, and yes, they haven't been the best team in recent years. But it doesn't change the fact they're my team. And you can count on me watching them every week, win or lose. Raider Nation has the most die hard fans in the league. I feel their time is coming soon.
Over the years, I have never really liked cooking. Turns out, I was just intimidated by it. Now that's not the case anymore (thanks to a few classes at Le Cordon Bleu), I am always interested in trying out cooking new things. When it's something I really liked, there's a good chance it's going up here.
I am one of the lucky ones. My career, is fun for me. I love the ever changing nature of online marketing, the raw data/analytics and competitive analysis necessary to excel in this field. I fell into Inbound Marketing, kind of like how I started my career, just falling into development. Almost all roles I have had since I finished college, I was asked to pick up the slack where there were holes. A little over 5 years ago, I was asked to start doing SEO, and haven't looked back.
I don’t want to say I have a routine, but nowadays I can whittle my activities down to four activites: family, football, food, and fun. Regardless of what kind of rock star life people may to portray themselves as having online, these are the types of things that make up the happy moments in a lot of lives. I mean, come on, who DOESN’T love it when the Raiders win on Sunday? I am going to try and keep up activity on here, and catalog events. Bought a house Dec. 2011, wedding coming up in August 2013, and started my own company this year. Glad you made it to my blog, so let’s see how well I can keep all of this organized.
