We have an incredible opportunity ahead to enable more people with Web3 technologies, and I'm thrilled, humbled, and delighted about what we're working on ahead. ✨

If you're playing Where's Waldo, it may get a bit more challenging as we have many ideas, and want to help make the world a better place however possible, especially for artists and creators.

It's been a wonderful journey at Webflow, with many ups and a few downs (I'll share a more personal note in the future to recap the past two years). It's truly an honor of a lifetime to have been invited to join Webflow back in February of 2016 to help support our customer and community base. After sending 178,218+ messages in Slack, traveling around the world (while working remotely from home primarily), and helping to build a very gifted team, it was a beautiful experience.

Here are a few photos from my time at Webflow

The day that I interviewed at Webflow in 2015
When Nelson and I finally met in person for the first time during my first week at Webflow 💖

Jess and I hiked about 10+ miles one evening with Pablo through San Francisco as he gave us the best tour of San Francisco that we've ever had!

The last few months have been the most intense rollercoaster of life that I've ever been on. 🎢 Honestly, the last two years have been an absolute doozy for us (and for many others).

My wife (Jessica) and I were praying a few weeks back for the right doors to open and close. The Monday after, I received a note and then a phone call from Pablo asking me if I would like to join the Blush team and the Robotos team to lead and serve our communities. 😍💖😊

My heart started beaming, I felt so much peace, joy and excitement. It's an opportunity of a lifetime to work with Pablo and the entire team, as well as to serve each of the community members in this space. 😊 ✨ The opportunities feel limitless.

I care deeply about everyone that I've had the opportunity to work with, lead, interact with or collaborate with over the years. I've always sought to lead by serving others, and I've recently learned about the term "transformational leadership" which describes my preferred and ever aspiring leadership style quite well (I'm writing a book on transformational leadership, leading by serving others, team development, and many more topics, stay tuned).

While at Webflow, I learned more than I ever anticipated, and I never expected myself to leave.  Though, life is flux, and onwards we go.

I'd like to extend an immense gratitude to Pablo, the team at Blush, and the Robotos community for your support, kindness, provision and encouragement during this season. Thank you for thinking of me and for inviting me along for the journey.

The future remains bright, with LOTS of life to live and lives to change. ❤️

Humanity needs more innovation, AI can help us move forward

One of the most significant impacts of AI, which is often met with disdain, speculation, and fear, is the sheer capabilities of what one can accomplish by asking a computer to complete tasks (simple or complex). Every time things become easier to do, competitive advantages are lost, innovation ensues, and new advantages are derived.

It's nice to be appreciated

It's a wonderful feeling to be appreciated. As humans, we crave and desire recognition & appreciation, whether we acknowledge it or not. I firmly believe that our levels of joy, and those around us, increases as we express and amplify moments of gratitude within our lives.
