Solve Problems

Nothing catches my attention like hard problems to solve. That’s probably why I do what I do.

Keep Current w/ Industry

First Half-Century Ride: Austin to San Marcos and Back

One of the big hurdles for a new cyclist is making their first 50+ mile ride. I’m training for the MS150, a two-day 150+ mile ride from Houston to Austin in April 2014. So obviously, I had to get a 50+ miler under my belt soon! I had decided to do the 54-mile route at…
