I live in Massachusetts Washington State with my wife and two sons. But I have never forgotten my western roots in Alberta, British Columbia, and California. My time in Massachusetts was important but, well, it was interesting.

The views expressed in this blog are my own and do not necessarily reflect the views of any former, current or future employers or employees of mine.

I also apologize for the curse on the Red Sox, the failure of the Canucks to win the Stanley Cup (I blame the Islanders, Rangers, and Bruins for this), and the weeds in your garden.

However, paid relocations to any of the major West Coast States [No longer necessary], shiny new technology and gadgets, speaking engagements, outdoor survival gear, and tickets to Formula E events can tempt me.
