Where have you been? I haven't seen you update...
Signed a major contract on Friday with a predominant international consulting firm that I’ve been working on for over a month. Needless to say, it has tied up my schedule and I am going to be busier than ever before. But I promise to make an effort not to be such an internet stranger. :) Ask me anything
thoughts on the upcoming election
Christine O’Donnell is an idiot and I am glad not to be anywhere near Delaware. Regardless of her credentials, and the tea partiers being seen as the fringe that they are, the Republicans are going to make major moves on November 2nd, and while it may not be total dominance, we will see the Democrats hurt. 2011 will be an interesting policy year.

We often look at the act of committing suicide as a psychological disorder. A problem for someone mentally unstable. A cry for help. Desperation. Many times all of the above. But in a world of shady people, unreliable friends, unfaithful partners, broken promises, lost jobs and far gone loved ones, we can no longer look at suicide as an act of cowardice. In a world where commitments mean...

Talk v Text
I don’t think I will ever see text messaging as a more efficient way of communicating detailed information that a phone call couldn’t accomplish. In the time it takes one individual to submit a single message, and entire conversation could have been completed, and time would be saved doing other more important things. Not to mention the fact that emotion is often communicated properly...
Can we get an update on your books?
Sure. SUICIDE is still on track for 2011, with major rewrites. INSPIRATIONAL REALITY CHECKS I am reworking the concept to best monetize it. The third unannounced book (wait - did I announce it? I don’t even know) I am still writing. Ask me anything

If your over 30 single with no kids.....I'm...
There is nothing that says people have to be married and have children by a certain date. It is not a necessity to be tied to one person for life. One may even argue that the ability to be self-sufficient without the need of a life-partner is indicative of a stronger personality than one who needs to be with somebody. Ask me anything
you haven't been very active lately. What's up
Working on several proposals. Developing a new company. Rethinking my three book projects. And overall staying fairly busy. Ask me anything
