Pushrim Podcast 2.0

On Monday, January 6th, 2014 I had the awesome privilege to be invited back on the Pushrim podcast show. So, I packed up the truck and made my way back down to San Pedro to meet the guys. We caught up over a quick coffee and got right to it recording. It is such a blast sitting down and chatting with Ray and Rich there at Pushrim. I really dig what they are doing with the website (www.Pushrim.com) and everything they have going.

Logix Federal Credit Union

on Sunday, 05 May 2013. Posted in personal, randomness

Just the other day, I opened a new account at a credit union here in Valencia at the Logix Federal Credit Union near my gym and I have to really give them huge kudos. My girlfriend had been sent a flyer for an offer if she referred someone to open an account and I had thought it would be good to have an account here close to home. Plus, she had such good things to say about the people at that branch in the past.

Negative Comments in Social Media

Not to ride on the death of another thrill seeker to bring it up, but after reading the comments on the crash video for Caleb Moore, I am forced to go on another rant. As a thrill-seeking, adrenaline junky, life LIVER as well, I can relate to the drive that guys like this have to push the limits. We all push the limits within ourselves to be better and in that moment we feel the buzz from a chemical reaction inside our own bodies.

"Cure" for Paralysis

on Wednesday, 07 August 2013. Posted in personal, randomness, rants

Maybe it’s because I haven’t had my coffee yet, but I am SO over seeing people write all this mess about “curing” paralysis. Cure Paralysis Project, Rise Up to Cure Paralysis, Miami Project to Cure Paralysis and so on.. Yes, I know there are some diseases that can cause paralysis in us humans, but the gross majority of people past, present and I am sure future are paralyzed from DAMAGE to the spinal column, like myself.

"Gimp Day" - 16 Years Later

on Thursday, 09 December 2010. Posted in personal, randomness

Sixteen years ago today, my life changed forever in an instant. Some feel sorry for me, with comments of “Oh, wow. That sucks!”, after I explain why I am in a wheelchair. Some think this was such a terrible thing to happen to me. Those people have no idea. I raise my glass on this day and celebrate it every single year. My life is better and more fulfilled than I could ever even dream of. I have been more places around the world, done more things, and have better friends around me than I could ever ask for.
