It’s Green Day | Happy St. Patrick’s Day

I wore my green today. Have you?


Gymnastics Live and In-Person ROCKS!

Last night, I went with 17,000 of my closest friends to see the U.S. Women’s Gymnastics Team be chosen. The women worked hard and performed amazing feats of gymnastic ability, and in the end only five of them are going on to the big show in London.

The experience of seeing the meet in person was fantastic. I would totally do it again. My seat was on the upper level directly by the balance beam. I mean it was so close I could hear the slap of feet on the beam after jumps and flips. The only thing I missed was the expert commentary by the NBC television team.

Here’s a few pictures from last night:

The team was named, and there’s confetti EVERYWHERE!


No flash photography. Yep, that’s my outline.

Working with Students

Tonight I had the privilege of fulfilling the best part of my duties as part of the IABC Orange County board. Not only am I the immediate past president, but this year I took on the role of education liaison.

This means that I get to spend time with the student chapter of IABC at my alma mater, California State University, Fullerton. Tonight was the first general meeting of the fall semester. A general meet and greet with the student board and a testimonial from one of the professional chapter members. That testimonial to IABC was me.

I spent a few minutes talking about my experiences and then about 30 minutes answering questions from the students. Now, I have done this in the past and heard nothing but crickets in the room; however tonight I answered more questions than ever.

Kudos to his new group of students for taking the initiative to learn. And, thank you to all of them for once again renewing my enthusiasm for what it is that I do. The more time I spend with students, the more I realize that communications is what I was meant to be doing.
