Trail Running

Monday, Wednesday, Fridays I run for fitness.

Sundays (and occasional days off from work) I find a big ass hill to run up. Below you can find my run recordings on Strava.


Programming

I work as a Principal Developer at Salesforce.com in the area of UI Architecture and Tooling.
There is not enough time in the world to do all the things I want to make our customers successful, least of all keeping a consistent blog. So here is my twitter feed.


Geeking out on Books

I love to find that next great book. Suggestions? Tweet me!

Recommendations

I try to recommend stuff that I haven't heard others talking about. Everyone knows about Enders Game (My first love from middle school, my favorite book, even if the authors crazy), but these are those rare books I somehow came upon that I think everyone should experience.

  • The Light Brigade - This book broke me for a while.
  • Ancillary Justice (and sequels) - For the first half you have no idea whats going on. Still worth just reading and absorbing the world to experience whats to come.
  • A Memory Called Empire - Feel a bit silly trying to convince people that a Hugo Award Winner is worth ready, but this series is fantastic. Run to the book store for it.
  • Too Like the Lightning - Unlike anything I've read. An epic story told as if by a poet.
