My Holiday Week On The West Coast (But Maybe Not The Coast You’re Thinking Of)

July 7, 2019

My family’s July 4th tradition is to meet up in St. Joseph, our favorite spot on the west coast… of Michigan. That’s the Lake Michigan coast, for the geographically challenged!

That pic was taken on a morning walk with JJ and my aunt Annie, who took the photo. We may or may not have been trespassing on Read the rest of this entry »

Too Many Photos From My First Weekend in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula

May 16, 2019

I took a lot of photos during my long weekend in the Upper Peninsula to go to the Red Bull 400. I wanted to remember this trip. Despite growing up in Michigan, I’ve barely spent any time there before!

Many Races Are Challenging, But None of Them Measure Up To The Red Bull 400

May 15, 2019

I love getting high. And before any of you jump to conclusions, I’m talking about stair races. I’ve raced the stairwells in all sorts of tall (and very tall) skyscrapers, but this past weekend I got to experience a whole new way to get high – by racing up a ski jump at the Red Bull 400.

April 17, 2019

Long story short: I’ve been making good healthy food choices since I arrived in Michigan.

Short story long: I’ve taken some, but not many, photos of my meals since arriving in town. I’m gonna share them! Read the rest of this entry »

February 19, 2019

After nearly 17 years in Los Angeles, I’ve decided to move to the Detroit area. I haven’t set a timeline in stone yet, but I’ll probably start driving cross-country with JJ towards the end of March.

I’ve been thinking about moving for a long time now – at least six months. The gears started turning in my head when I realized that Read the rest of this entry »


My Christmas in Pictures

December 31, 2018

I’m back from a week in Michigan for Christmas, and spent lots of great quality time with family. I was determined to stay focused on my health and fitness all week, and made lots of wonderful choices, and some not-so-wonderful ones, too. I’ll get into all of that, but first… SANTA!

That’s Lynn on the right. Our families have been Read the rest of this entry »


A Super Cool and Successful Motivational Speaking Event!

July 16, 2018

Last week, I had the pleasure of giving a motivational talk at Birmingham Next, a nonprofit community center in Birmingham, Michigan, down the street from the high school I graduated from. It was a packed house!

About 70 folks filled the room, and I hate to toot my own horn, but… wait, what am I talking about? Sometimes it’s great to toot my own horn! It was freakin’ awesome!
