Finding Meaning in it All

I've spent too much time on the road these past few weeks.  Though I had amazing experiences working with teachers in Maryland, Connecticut, New York, and Virginia (with a trip back to the west coast in-between) it was a bit much.  I love the work that we do at EdTechTeam and it's easy for me to get caught up and see how far I can push it.

the other side of me

I spend most of my time thinking and working on education projects. I created this page to begin exploring the non-edu side my life.  This is a project with an audience of one--but feel free to follow along.

This is a catalyst that will push me to seek out exciting non-edu adventures--new tastes, smells, sights, sounds, and feelings.  To discover what gets me excited about the world and unlock the mysteries of my brain. 

Let's go.
