Hey, 7 months late posting the photos is better than never.

Test post

Gonna use this blog to share some photos from my wedding and trips to South Africa. Eventually it’ll be the home page for my website.

For now, here’s our puppy Luca that we got back in March.

Fight Cancer: Sponsor a Flying Turkey

Hey everyone,

My mom’s side of the family has a pretty extensive history fighting and overcoming cancer (my mom, two of her three sisters, and two of their husbands, have all successfully fended off various forms of the disease), and as a result they’ve become dedicated supporters of the Lance Armstrong Foundation.

Every year we all get together for the big Livestrong Challenge event here in town. We “race” under the team name of The Flying Turkeys, since the sisters grew up on a turkey farm just outside of Austin. Now that I’m back in Texas, this is my first year running with the Turkeys, and I couldn’t be more excited. It also means I’m a fundraising noob and asking the internet to provide me with its copious small-donation bounty.

If y’all would like to donate to the cause, I’ve set up a direct link for easy online donations:


My family and I appreciate anything you can give, so thanks in advance and feel free to pass this post on to others.

From Austin, Without Internet


We’re back and settling in, but the house we’re in can’t get internet access. Photos and posts will trickle in when I can make it to a coffee shop.

Above, a shot from our last week in the Bay, when some friends came to visit.

Flickring for Change

I enjoyed theWhite House’s Delivering on Change photoset on Flickr.

Interesting for me personally were the behind-the-scenes shots, which reveal, in mannerisms at least, that Obama the President doesn’t look a whole lot different than Obama the Guy on a Book Tour Who Maybe, Just Maybe, Could Run for President.

Back to Austin!

For the last week I’ve been buried under enjoying our last couple weeks in California and trying to finish editing Lilly’s wedding before we move. Photos will be light, but Twittering should remain active for those wanting to keep in touch.

We roll into Austin on May 1! Can’t wait!

The last big protest I saw at the Texas Capitol…


Wondering if the Tea Party in Austin today will compare at all to the immigration-law protests back in 2006, which didn’t have a huge discernible effect on legislation. Guessing these won’t either… God willing.

Lilly Looking Happy


Probably my favorite shot from the wedding. Took me a while to edit, though, because there was a light fixture in the background that appeared to stick straight out of Lilly’s head. Three cheers for the digital age.
