Making Some Changes

I realize that I haven’t done a great job with updating my blog on changes in my life.

Since my update of me going to Sasquatch, I’ve had a number of changes and gone on some awesome adventures: Read the rest of this entry

I’ve never gone through the loss of a pet as a child. We had pets, but I was never aware of them “passing” and none that were so close to me in the last few years in my life before they passed.  I did have a dog, Malakai, an amazing goofy dog who was hit by a car while being looked after in California, but at the time I was no longer his owner…but still extremely sad.

Remmy passed away this morning after she stopped eating and began to stop moving as much. I had to water her by hand last night as I propped her mouth open and this morning as I was freaking out trying to figure out what to do, she stopped moving completely.

Remmy, originally Remmington, lived a good life with lots of people friends.  She was at first thought to be a boy, but in the last couple months I found out he was actually a she.

She sadly didn’t have any other reptiles to hang out with, but definitely made me and many others happy.  I loved that lizard and was so glad to share the last almost three years with her.  Hopefully those who have been able to meet her will remember her for being a happy and loving (as much as a scaly lizard could be) pet.

Remmy, you’ll truly be missed!

Love you,


Au Revoir Coaxis/VCS!

Come this Friday (March 23rd), I’ll be having my last day at Coaxis Inc./Viewpoint Construction Software.  I’ve had a great couple of years at this company and quite sad about leaving.  The people have been the best part and how the company treats the people there is fantastic.

The reason I’m leaving is I’ve been given an opportunity to join another company in the Portland area.  The company is Urban Robotics.  A company that I’ve considered looking into for some time.  My buddy Bobby works there and told me so many good things about the place.  The biggest reason I even considered applying was seeing his positive attitude when it came to the work he has been doing at UR.  I could clearly see that he enjoyed what he is doing and I miss having that joy.

I’m not positive everything I’ll be doing, but I’ll be doing C++ development on 2D/3D image processing software primarily for the department of defense involved around aerial photography.  What all it entails, I’m not totally sure, but I know I’ll be challenged and using some skills I haven’t used in some time, so I’m truly excited and nervous about the change.  I’ll also get to work on new hardware and cool software.  Always good things!

My start date at UR is May 1st, so I’ll be enjoying a nice break between jobs.  During this time I’m focusing really hard on finishing up my pilots license, taking a couple trips, and doing a lot of stuff in the outdoors.  Should be a great break!

Here’s to whatever the future holds!  I’m so excited for my next adventure!
