My First Post in a long time

This is my first post.  It’s going to be a short one, but it’s here.   I plan on sharing my thoughts, experiences and advice on several topics ranging from enterprise level web development all the way down to how to play a particular poker hand.

Here’s a little bit about me:

I am married to a wonderful woman who gladly puts up with all of my shit (which I am very thankful for) and I have a very energetic son who keeps my wife and myself very busy.  I work for an ecommerce website (won’t mention the name for the sake of this being indexed with the name of the company) and I also own a website company based out of Scottsdale Arizona.  Nearly all of my time is spent working for this ecommerce company, with any of the remainder (which is little) being spent on the web company.  The ecommerce company that I work for is the fastest growing company I have ever worked for, dealt with or been a part of.  We grow at a speed that doesn’t exist in business, and it’s actually quite exciting.  The reason for our growth really boils down to a few things…a passionate/knowledgeable CEO, passionate associates at the company who care ALOT about the future and finally being well capitalized and positioned within our market.  I am very fortunate as I love what I do (if you don’t I recommend trying it) and am learning new things every day.  I am surrounded by great people in both places and am fortunate to only be able to provide value but also get to glean good information from my peers.

If I am not working, I am usually spending time with my family, friends or trying to squeeze a poker session in here and there.  Spending time with my son/wife, and playing poker are really the only two activities that I allows my mind to escape from work.  But as I said before, i really enjoy what I do so it doesn’t always feel like work… (unless something is down and this happens).

I look forward to sharing my thoughts on various topics, feel free to comments or ask questions.
