    Overwhelmed at work

    For better or for worse, I ascribe a great deal of value or importance to how productive I perceive myself to be. My sense of self-worth is heavily dictated by how much I get done, how much I am able to accomplish. When I look in the mirror at the end of the day, I […]

    Elementary School Michael

    See that cute kid reading the outlandishly enormous book? That was me, I think in grade 4. For the lack of a better term, I was a “nerd.” I think one of my favorite games at the time was Where in the World Is Carmen Sandiego?, which might explain why I was posing with a […]

    Chris Fussell

    I had a great mentor early in my career give me advice that I’ve heeded until now, which is that you should have a running list of three people that you’re always watching: someone senior to you that you want to emulate, a peer who you think is better at the job than you are […]

    Vancouver Mini Maker Faire

    Life is what you make of it. And you can make it with paint, fabric, metal, discarded computer parts, LEGO bricks… or you can use a 3D printer. Makers of the world (or at least in the general metropolitan area) united over the weekend at Vancouver Mini Maker Faire and I was there to take […]

    Flying without autopilot

    I remember turning 16 and learning how to drive for the first time. My mom took me to the quiet part of a mall parking lot where I was far less likely to be a danger to those around me. Fair enough, I suppose. Having only been exposed to driving in a video game, it […]

    A kid's personality

    They may have their individual quirks and “every baby is different,” but if we’re going to be perfectly honest, newborns don’t have much of a developed personality. Instead, while there are glimmers and glimpses leading up to it, I’d venture to say that a kid’s personality doesn’t really start to emerge until right around his […]

    Ryan Reynolds

    Nothing better than spending an entire morning staring into my baby daughter’s eyes, whispering, “I can’t do this.” He was once named the sexiest man alive by People Magazine. And he played the merc with the sewn up mouth and friggin’ laser beams shooting out of his eyes too. Oh, are we not supposed to […]

    Nintendo Switch

    I’ve been a “gamer” pretty well my whole life, starting out with Defender and Missile Command on the Atari 2600 some time in the 1980s. I grew up in the arcades, putting my quarters on the display ledge to call “next” with the best of them. While I did (and do) play on PC and […]

    Costco run

    I’ve stated so many times before that the flexibility afforded by the freelance lifestyle is both a blessing and a curse. I’ve said that because I can work at any time, I feel like I should be working all the time. That’s not fair, of course, and I understand that perfectly on an intellectual level. […]
