Confession #4:  I do my best work after 9pm


A lot of people who haven’t done it have this flawed misconception that working from home means I clock into work and work 8-5pm, then walk away.  While that may be the case for some, it isn’t the case for me at all.  My work load, most often, comes as a list of things that […]

Confession #3:  I’m addicted to Caffeine


I am a caffeine addict in the purest sense of the word.  If I don’t have some sort of caffeine in my body by 9am, I’m already grumpy and dying from the storm-sized migraine rolling into my frontal lobe.  Staying up late and waking up early means coffee is a requirement. My work is unique […]

The Blog is Born


From Facebook: I don’t really talk on here much about the work that I do or what I really get up to. I tend to just be busy doing stuff and not always talking about it. I thought it was high time I discuss it. For those of you who don’t know, I have been […]
