I Like Fitness

I have been lean, fat, and all things in my life. When I focus my spare time on fitness I am the most happy. I have learned a few things along the way. I share all that stuff here.

  • Qalo Ring Photoshoot
    Luke’s final photoshoot, for the Qalo ring (as well as some lady’s apparel items that sadly didn’t feature me).
  • Resiliency Project Photoshoot
    Latest photoshoot for the Resiliency Project. I’ve done a few photo shoots with Luke before. He’s a great photographer, and a great friend. Stoked to have some awesome sponsors for this. I’ve been a fan of graston technique since I tore my pec in 2014. The Leopard Claw’s samurai sword shape (@leopard_claw) helps reach areas […]
I like Tech

I like Tech

I started writing code around 2001/2002. I was in college to become a civil engineer. Once I got into the rabbit hole of writing code, I never turned back. Many things have been learned along the way. I share my experience about it all here.

  • Humility – The Medicine The World Needs in 2020
    True knowledge exists in knowing that you know nothing. Socrates I’ve written and rewritten this post more than once. This is tough to write. On one hand, I’m writing about the need for humility in discussion in public forums. I’m writing about the need to acknowledge fault and imperfection in beliefs and thoughts. On the […]
  • State of Blogging in 2020
    The state of blogging in 2020 is not good. A couple of weeks ago, I decided to get off of social media. I’ve been pretty frustrated with the direction of social media and people at large. I’ve been keen on the idea of decentralization of the web for a while. Trying to get back into […]
