What a week!

What a crazy week it’s been. It all started off with a little swim to help some awesome folks…

And they did it!!!!! So proud of our plungers! #penguinplunge #specialolympicsVT

Followed by a climb to one of Vermont’s highest peaks with some friends


And *I thought* bookended by one of the greatest football games of all time.

BUT then today, I was honored to find out that I’ve been awarded #vExpert status from VMware.


With all the uncertainty in the world these days I thought that I was going to sit down and hammer out some “Deep Thoughts by Jack Handy” type proverbs. But perhaps what we (and I really mean me) need these days is little more appreciation and gratitude.

I’m so happy that I got to help the Special Olympics in some meager way. If you’d like to help as well, please visit https://specialolympicsvermont.org/. Despite getting my derriere kicked climbing up Camel’s Hump, I’m appreciative for the friendship that brought me there and the beauty that we experienced. I am happy for the simple joys in life, like rooting on my favorite team and celebrating being an underdog. I’m thankful for my career and the opportunities it’s brought me. And last but almost certainly not least, I am appreciative for my family who’ve supported and encouraged me through all these endeavors.

I hope that you find the same joy and appreciate in those things that matter most to you.

Be well,

    Congrats on the new status, even if I have no idea what it means.

    I’m incredibly proud of you for your support of such an amazing group.

    Awesome stuff! I missed the plunge this year but will be there next year for sure! Such a great cause and a lot of fun too! Must have been a challenging hike up Camel’s Hump! I did Pico right after the biggest storm we got this year and it worked me over too! Lastly, CONGRATS on the vExpert cert!! So awesome and well deserved!
