Why? Because I want to help stop diabetes


For years, I’ve ridden the Tour de Cure, the fund-raising bicycle ride to benefit the American Diabetes Association. I’ve ridden for a coworker’s son, my supervisor, my mentor, my wife’s friend, and others.

But this year, I learned my own brother has been diagnosed with pre-diabetes. Now this fight got personal.

Maybe you know someone affected by diabetes. Maybe it’s your family member. Maybe it’s yourself.

I’m riding again to raise awareness. To fight. To Stop Diabetes.

Join my team and ride. Sponsor a rider. Or share our links to raise awareness among your own circle of friends.

Amgen Tour of California – geewhiz photos


Convergence (n) – the point at which objects meet.

On May 15, 2011, my hometown of Sacramento became the convergence point, and I could only be at one place at one time.
So, I shot photos at the Amgen Tour of California as it blew into my hometown.
Wrapping itself around the state capitol for its final leg of this “opening” stage, the race finished just blocks away from where I also wanted to be, the Sacramento Community Center.

For it was at that precise time and place that my other true passion was converging.
The technical communicators’ annual conference!
