Once upon a time I lived in La Jolla. It was chilly and overcast often compared to Hawaii and Florida, but I loved it!
I’m a proud big brother, and slightly jealous. Within a couple weeks my brother managed to far surpass my own web presence — granted I’ve built a small portion of the internets. But he went from only 100 Twitter followers to over 5000 in 2 weeks! How did he accomplish such a feat you might
It’s been 5 months since moving from Maui to San Diego. I’ve had fun exploring the area — hanging out downtown, visiting north county, surfing cold water, eating delicious Mexican food and much more. San Diego is an awesome place. It’s beautiful, diverse and there’s plenty to keep me busy. When it comes to living
1. The View I lived in Launiupoko. Every evening I had incredibly epic sunsets over the island of Lanai, with views of Molokai and Kahoolawe on each side. Behind the cottage lies the West Maui Mountains. They are a sight to behold when the sun sets on the golden fields of grass, with the horses

Just a head’s up, the audio isn’t working properly for the first minute. Here’s my first real speech in front of a large crowd since D.A.R.E. To Keep Kids Off Drugs when I was like 12-years-old. Unbeknownst to me at the time, the presentation was filmed. Jeff and I presented our topic of Approaching Theme
I may be a little late, but I just read an old post by Justin Tadlock, Screw the Premium Theme Market. It’s not as abrasive as the title would have you believe. Basically, he makes a case for free WordPress themes versus the premium market. He makes some valid points — there are several free
Not so long ago, I worked for a large interactive agency serving fortune 500 companies. The agency specialized in creating content management systems (CMS) for custom websites — which brought a particular amount of value to their services. So much value in fact — they charged millions of dollars for their web design and development
I’m a Rage Against the Machine fan. I consider myself to be somewhat anti-establishment. A few years ago I probably considered America an evil and corrupt nation. While it’s far from a perfect place, the American Dream isn’t evil. I’m not talking about a white picket fence in suburbia with a beautiful family and successful
I didn’t think one existed. I’ve searched high and low for an ultra simple jQuery slideshow plugin that easily displays the post images from my WordPress gallery. Unfortunately, most plugin developers are horrible designers. The internet is littered with WordPress slideshow plugins featuring overly complicated options, text overlays, annoying transitions and ugly styling — until
