  • A few times in your life, the word "Yes" carries so much weight that the impact of hearing it changes you immediately. Tomorrow is redefined. You are redefined.

    Yesterday I was a 37 year old entrepreneur, physicist, technologist, consultant and modest adventurer. Today I am an expecting father. All of my thoughts on my own upbringing, my father and our relationship come to me in a sudden rush.
