Stone update – June 30, 2010

Posted by on June 30, 2010 in Autism, Parenting, Showcase |

It’s been about 6 weeks since my last Stone update so I thought this would be a good time for a quick post. The big news in June has been POTTY TRAINING! Yes, even though he is 4 1/2 years old , Stone has had to continue wearing pull-ups to take care of business. This […]


Social Media Continues Staggering Growth

Posted by on June 29, 2010 in Showcase, Social Media, Uncategorized, Work |

Everyone in business (and society) is now realizing that social media is here to stay and most have accepted blogs, Facebook and at least the concept of Twitter in their lives and communication. And if they haven’t, they soon will (or will be left behind). But sometimes it’s difficult to put into context just how […]


An ode to Junior…

Posted by on June 2, 2010 in Showcase, Sports |

Late today I received an email alert from the Seattle Times announcing that Ken Griffey Jr. was retiring from the Seattle Mariners and Major League Baseball after a storied 22 year career. The news wasn’t a huge surprise – and was even somewhat anticipated – given Griffey’s poor statistics this season. Yet it still felt […]


Stone Update – May 19, 2010

Posted by on May 19, 2010 in Autism, Parenting, Showcase |

First, I truly want to thank the many people who have offered their support and encouragement to Stone via this blog and my Facebook updates. It has provided me with a lot of much-needed strength and resolve to continue helping Stone in any way possible. It’s now been 3 months since I wrote about Stone’s […]


Just another night in Edmonds…

Posted by on May 17, 2010 in Community, News, Showcase |

Tonight started innocently enough. I attended a well-organized Tweet Up at Arnie’s Restaurant in Edmonds and met a lot of great fellow Tweeters. Because today is Renee and my 13th wedding anniversary we had agreed that I’d pick up a pizza on the way home as a mini-celebration. I called as planned before I left […]


Videogames, iPhone Apps and Twins

Posted by on May 7, 2010 in Showcase |

As a bonafide member of Generation X, I’m officially part of the first true videogame generation. I still vividly remember when my parents bought the family the popular Atari video game system. My brother and I played countless hours on that thing – even with limits set by our parents. The technology was crude by […]

The implosion of Juliana (our Au Pair for a week)

Posted by on April 28, 2010 in Parenting, Showcase |

In my last post I dutifully explained our experiences with Au Pairs and talked about how some experiences have been better than others. I optimistically wrote that I was sure our new Au Pair from Brazil, Juliana, would be a great fit in our family and we couldn’t wait to meet her. Wow – I […]


Yes, an Au Pair is just a fancy word for a nanny

Posted by on April 9, 2010 in Parenting, Showcase |

Every parent I know has had to deal with external child care issues at some point. Nearly every family has both parents working either part or full time so finding child care is always an issue. Soon after the twins were born, Renee and I decided to work with an Au Pair agency for our […]


Back in the saddle again…

Posted by on April 6, 2010 in Marketing, Public Relations, Showcase, Social Media, Work |

No, I’m not talking about blogging again (although it would be appropriate after my 3+ week posting hiatus). I’m talking about being a partner in Zenwerks,  a Seattle-based digital branding and web development/design company. For those who know me best personally and professionally, the move back to the agency side seems so obvious it’s almost […]


Hard to love *these* Ducks…

Posted by on March 12, 2010 in Oregon Ducks, Showcase, Sports |

There is much that has been said and written about the off-field issues surrounding the Oregon Ducks football program the past two months and as a long-time (20+ years) Ducks fan and supporter as well as professional marketer and brand expert I have my own perspective. These are very unchartered waters for the Ducks (and […]
