If I don’t mention my family, that makes me a douchebag right? Oh, ok! Seriously, just look at those smiling faces… My wife and my three little girls are my whole world. I don’t say that lightly. They haven’t always been. I’ve actually worked through quite a bit of shit to discover what really matters in my life.


We’re currently living in San Luis Obispo, CA  Chattanooga, Tennessee – the home of beautiful mountainsincredible coffee and lovely typefaces.

These days, my focus is on simply enjoying my life and my work. That may seem obvious, but it’s actually taken a lot of years to get to that mindset.

I’m a hardcore perfectionist with shiny-object-syndrome, so I tend to always be starting new things. Still working on the “finishing” part. But, truth be told, I still don’t really know what I want to be when I grow up. I’m hoping to figure it out by the time I’m 60.

Like most people, what I crave most is authentic connection with people. When you boil it down, that’s what this podcast is really about. It’s an excuse to have meaningful conversations with folks who share my perpetual existential crises.

I’m currently spending my days on my podcast, The Gently Mad, and revamping my podcasting course, Irresistible Podcasting, making WordPress themes and plugins at WP Theory and doing client work at Bottlerocket.

In the meantime, if you’re stuck and need help, don’t hesitate to ask. Seriously. Send me and email or hit me on Twitter. And get on the newsletter. I don’t have a bunch of stuff to sell you. I just want to engage and that seems to be the best place for it these days.
