Job Hunt

Earlier this week I announced that I started work at ESPN. Only a handful of people knew that they had extended an offer and even less knew that I had accepted. This comes after almost six months since I left my previous position. While it is an accomplishment, I did not do it completely myself. Read More

It Bothers Me that it Doesn’t Bother Me

Fountain Pen

Computers have a unique way of making writing a bit mentally lazy — indulging in a stream of consciousness writing. One doesn’t take the extra few minutes to think about what one is going to write or think about the missing pieces and how they all fit together It is, perhaps, because, we can cut, Read More

I Did It For Me

Today marks my 1 year anniversary at Gobbler. It’s odd… I’m in my late twenties and this is only the second job where I have stay for longer than year, the other being at Line 6. But I’m going to tell you a secret… I quit there, three times. I was going to write a Read More
