Personal Update 201512 | 27 December 2015 | Sunday


I hope you’re doing well. Thanks for taking a moment to read my latest update.

Career Change

Earlier this month I announced an exciting career change. As you may know, I’ve been working at the University of Iowa for a long time. Over the past year, with expanded duties, the workload increased significantly. Although I enjoyed the work, I was putting in 50 to 60 hours a week, cutting into the evenings and weekends when I do some outside consulting. This month, a company approached me with a job offer, and I decided to accept it. I’m feeling good about the decision, and sleeping better at night.

Beautiful Iowa City Video

This month I discovered a locally produced video on YouTube about the Iowa City area. It had about 80 views a few hours after it launched. Today it has over 27,000 views. I think you’ll agree it’s quite magnificent. Take a look.


NPR Interview

In case you missed it, last month on Thanksgiving I was surprised to learn that a radio interview from earlier this year was airing again on NPR, apparently nation-wide. Since it was originally recorded live, it convincingly seemed to be happening on Thanksgiving day. I wouldn’t have known about the interview except that friends and family were texting me to let  me know about it. I’d neglected to put the interview on my website, so I took the opportunity to create a post of the interview.


Many thanks to all of you who keep in touch and provide support for the work I do.
