Perhaps the fastest way to intake content and learn new things is thru videos. I regularly create and share video content. Just recently started authoring new videos and various content to learn some of the latest video editing tools available just to pick up new skills.
Occasionally Withers reviews products, from gadgets to cars… just for the fun of it and to often times give my perspective from a user experience standpoint. Arondale recently authored white papers on the application of beacon technologies.
In addition to my interests, I believe it is important to nurture relationships of all kinds and to stop and smell the roses. From sharing vacations, experiences to friends gone wild, I will occasionally post topics of interest and people that resonate in my life. I’m grateful and thankful for my wife, friends, and family.
