What I'm Doing Now

(This is a now page.)

Making Space

I like this Thoreau quote: It is not enough to be busy. So are the ants. The question is: What are we busy about?

2019 felt like a busy year, but I'm not confident what about. So I'm working on eliminating as much as possible, getting back to basics, and making space to breathe and decide what's next. (I'll be updating my list of projects as I go.)

Pausing the Podcast

In 2019 I kicked of "season 2" of my podcast, experimenting with the interview format, and published 53 interviews (and 15 vlog style episodes). I enjoy podcasting, and especially having good conversations, and am sure I'll do it again when the time is right.

Being a Dad

Most of my non-working time is spent being Dad. The evening routine. Friday movie nights. Weekends. And some fun adventures planned in 2020.

Work By Day

During the week I'm focused on my day job at Utilicast. I'm supporting PGE's implementation of an ADMS system, and LADWP's integration into the Western EIM.
