Mega Post

So,  I’m calling this post that name because I intend for it to be just that – mega.

Anyway, it’s 2014 and from the last time I posted to now, a number of things have happened.

I left Wall Street and joined a a company that deals with Speech recognition software. Great people, great opportunity, etc. This place has enabled me to travel to parts of the US I’ve never seen. I feel a different sense  of responsibility and it’s a far different pace of work than I’d ever been involved with. I’ve met some exceptional individuals both on the job and off.

Moved out of my parents house and into a nice 1 bedroom in Maspeth, NY with this silly gal.

Stopped bothering with the fixer upper cars and bought me a newer, nicer ride.

2010 MK6 GTI

Finished (mostly) a long time project of mine. My beloved 98 GTI VR6. It was a long and trying journey, but I was very happy to get her on the road again.

1st time out in 2 years

We got engaged! Weird because I didn’t find myself wanting to do this anytime soon, but as I got to know this gal longer, it was inevitable.  🙂

On bended knee

and then, we moved to California!

All in all, it has been a PHENOMENAL past 3 years. I turned 31 years young this year. My 1st birthday out of my element. Leaving New York and my family and friends was definitely difficult. But, I am inspired by them and all of it. It’s what I learned there and how I lived there that got me here in the 1st place. An experience I could never trade for anything in the world. To which I am grateful for. 

NY to the heart
