2013 Year in Review

This year was all about transition for me. The big change came in the middle of the year when I interviewed with a company (when I had no intention of leaving my current job) and decided to accept their offer. This new position was a complete change from what I’ve been used to pretty much my entire career! In addition to the professional growth I experienced this year, I also hit a major milestone by reaching 1 year of Crossfit (and still going strong)!

All in all, another amazing year for me and definitely looking forward to a hopefully calmer next year with a huge focus on discovery and learning!

Some bullet points:

  • Joined Facebook 😦
  • Did BarBell Club
  • Tough Mudder 2013!

  • Rock Climbing Gym
  • Started working with node.js
  • Hit 160lbs!
  • Helped build an app that made it to the app store!
  • 1 year of Crossfit! (and counting)

  • Still blogging and hit 2000 visitors/month (10,700 for the year)!
