What I’m Thankful For

I have plenty to be thankful for this year. My 4-year-old twins are doing well–healthy, happy, and eating everything in sight. My parents, sister, and extended family are doing well. My wife is having some success with her consulting business. I’ve passed the two year mark at my current company and it continues to be the best environment I’ve been part of as a black technologist in my entire career so far.

I’m looking forward to continuing professional and personal growth in 2020 (and beyond) and wish those who may read this the same.

Owning My Words

After Scott Hanselman retweeted this blog post recently about owning your words, I’ve decided to get back into blogging (and hopefully spend less time on social media) after a long hiatus from an already-infrequent blogging schedule. Twitter in particular has probably consumed the bulk of my writing output from 2014 to now, with Tumblr hosting a few longer pieces on topics outside of tech.

I’m finding the process of coming with new topics that merit a blog post on a more regular basis a bit challenging, so I’ll probably start by revisiting older posts and using them as starting points for new work. The topics here will go back to having a clear tech connection, while other areas I’m interested in will get their own site. I bought a new domain recently that I like a lot better than the current .org that I may move this tech content to as well as a subdomain if I’m feeling especially ambitious.
