I recently helped a friend orchestrate a weekend garage sale. My sole…

Life After Intel

You won’t find me fishing full time, nor living in one of those golf cart gated communities. I need to and want to continue to work, so the job search will begin soon.

My hope is to continue to…

You do not need to settle.
