This Site Is Not Dead Yet

And unlike the Monty Python bit, it won’t be any time soon, either. But there is a real concern that posting every 1, 2 or 5 years could become an annoying habit. All that being said, here I am again.

So what happened over the last five years? So much that it’s hard to know where to begin. I got licensed as an architect, accredited as a LEED professional, and certified as an accessibility specialist. About as much professional upheaval as possible while still remaining employed at the same company. Lots of my friends and family got married. I got married. My father died. I bought a house.

As I hinted at in my previous post (er, five years ago, ahem), I want to pass on my knowledge and experience in professional development. The path to getting licensed as an architect in particular, but also the LEED AP and CASp processes as well. To this end, I’ve created a new category called Flight School to organize these posts.

I’m also excited to share the adventure that is my new house. Built in 1955 by the short-lived San Francisco team of Bernard J. Sabaroff and Harold C. Dow, it’s a delightful mid-century contemporary situated on a small but dramatically sloped site. It will need work to get it back to top shape. But “it has good bones” as my wife likes to say. You can follow along with our progress under the new Hangar category.

In closing, I would be remiss to not mention my lovely wife, Natalee. She is my co-pilot on this crazy adventure, and I couldn’t imagine anyone with whom I’d rather fly off into the sunset.

So there you have it: Five years summarized in a few paragraphs. I just hope another five years doesn’t go by before the next post…
