New pictures and videos
It’s been a while since I’ve posted some pictures and videos—so I decided it was time to do so again. I’ve posted some great new shots of Riley, along with some amazing new videos of his latest “talents.” And I’ve also included some pictures from our recent trip to Seattle to visit some friends over the 4th of July weekend. I know you can hardly wait—so go check them out!

I got a job!
Great news! Just as my one year contract with Microsoft Live Meeting was nearing its end, I’ve been offered a permanent, full time position with The City of Portland as a web developer.
I start my new job tomorrow, July 11th. I’m very excited as the position is everything I’ve been looking for in my next career move. I will be maintaining and enhancing existing web applications, along with new application development, for both internal and public use. I’ve had some difficulty finding a position that I felt was a good match for my skills and experience and would provide me with the opportunities that I’ve been looking for.
Luckily, I feel that this position is a great fit for me and I expect that our relationship will be mutually benefitial to both employer and employee. I think that I will enjoy the people that I’ll be working with and find great satisfaction in the type of work that I’ll be doing. I expect to stay with The City of Portland for a long time to come.
Stay tuned for more updates in the future as I get a better feel for what projects I’ll initially be working on.
