All It Took: 10 Years of Marriage Equality

Under the San Francisco city hall rotunda last night, I watched two guys I consider mentors and father-figures get married.

The miners, while slow to accept this strange alliance, ended up becoming a powerful force […]

An Afternoon on the Vineyard at Olivia Brion

Today my friends and I spent the afternoon taking private wine tours and tastings in Napa. It was an incredible day of laughing, eating, and drinking. One winery that stood out was Olivia Brion.

A Billy Joel Weekend

The work week was intense. Nothing could be better than a calm morning in San Francisco’s loft district SOMA with my dog Max and an iced coffee. I am ready for some Billy Joel. Why BJ? I love sports and I love stats so let’s run the numbers. Billy Joel achieved 33 Top 40 hits […]
