“How do I know what I think until I see what I say.” – E.M. Forster

This site is my attempt to know better what I think about living an excellent life. I share the kinds of things I would enjoy reading and discovering, and, in the process, I hope to offer something useful and meaningful to others.

I have worked in higher education at my alma mater since 1992. My job has given me a front row seat to the adventures of my school’s most dynamic student leaders. They continue to teach me much about excellence and curiosity and friendship.

I write mostly about what I’m learning and what I’m reading. I’m interested in life wisdom, quality work, technology, and books.

I enjoy speaking to audiences regularly about education, work, presentation skills, and what I’m learning about how to be awesome.

Some favorite posts on this site for those exploring:

I’m living the dream with my wife and two young daughters and hoping to live the kind of life that awakens possibility in others.
