Marriage is not a thing that I put much time into thinking about during the course of my life. Because of that I never spent much time thinking about what my preferences would be should the event ever become a reality.

That being said, when it came up and I got engaged I had to think about what I wanted the event to look like. We are not very traditional people and since Melissa is a scientist I feel like she is more in tune with my logical approach to big life decisions so when the serious talk began there were 2 very large decisions to make.

1. Do we have a formal wedding and spend what little money we have or buy a house.

2. Where do we want to have our wedding.

To the 1st question… WE GOT A HOUSE!!


To the 2nd question I only had one piece of input: “I always imagined that if I were to get married, it would be with my feet in the water on a beach somewhere.”




We ended up having a very small and intimate wedding with just our immediate families but in the end I got exactly what I wanted, a wedding with my feet in the ocean and a wife that gets me.

So now we will be going on the future adventures together and I couldn’t be happier about it.

Catch you on the next one,



Back on the road

I get mad at myself for not sitting down and documenting my travels any more so I’ve decided to get back on the horse. It’s not that I haven’t done anything in the past two years, it’s really just that life kinda caught up with me and finding the time to record my thoughts has been incredibly difficult. Not to bore anyone with the excuses, lets get caught up real quick!

Towards the end of 2015 we finally took advantage of living this far north and did some skiing at Whitetail Resort.


As you can tell it was unseasonably warm but the snow stuck around so we kept at it.

Shortly after that, at the beginning of 2016 Melissa and I were lucky enough to attend ‘A Night for Justice’ for Adnan Syed. If you’ve been listening to Serial like we have this would have been just as exciting for you as it was for us. The thing is that when we started listening to Serial we lived in Florida and all the places and things that they were talking about were alien to us and far away. Now that we live in MD, everything they mention in the podcast is not only more real, but it’s close! So when they mentioned that there was going to be a gala event in Baltimore, a mere 45 min drive from our home, we jumped at the chance.


That panel is everyone from Undisclosed and the Truth and Justice podcasts. And that’s Susan Simpson from Undisclosed in the picture with us.

During the dinner, Adnan actually called Rabia’s cell phone and took questions from the audience. It was pretty nuts.

I went down to Fl a few times for various celebrations.


We were lucky enough to attend a few weddings. Namely the Tombler wedding and my oldest friend Rich’s wedding where I was honored to be the best man.


Then I finally got the chance to do some fishing up here, it took a while but everything finally lined up. The good people of the Lexianna took us out with Jason of the Sapphire Lounge in Bethesda and a few others for a good time on the water.



There are some other things coming but I feel like they deserver their own posts so I’ll leave them for that.

It’s good to be back.
