We have been busy at CNP….

It has been a while since our last post, so at Cristy’s request, I am jumping in and saying hi to the blogging world. This past month we have been updating and adding additional computers and software to our arsenal. We reworked our office and workspace to be more compatible and more efficient for both of us. Cristy even got a new comfy office chair that is oh so plush. So what does this mean for all of you? Brace yourselves, you will be hearing more from me as I will be contributing to the blog to help free Cristy up to tackle other CNP projects.

So for my first blog post, I thought it would be fun for you all to get to know me a little more since I have been in the background and behind the camera with CNP thus far. So, where to start. I guess the most common comment when meeting people in person is, “wow, you are a lot bigger in person”. Well I am 6′ 4″ and although I am 34 years old, my Wii Fit age is 40. Yeah, thanks Nintendo for that little “calculation”. I grew up living all over the west coast. Northern California was for the most part home, growing up. I graduated from Santa Rosa High School in 1992 and attended the University of Northern Colorado where I played baseball for the University and spent a lot of time in the Rocky mountains “playing”. After leaving school, I began working with an environmentally conscious company where I learned a lot about our impact on the environment and how to not only take care of ourselves, but our planet. This is where I met Cristy. We happened to be attending a training together and for the most part have been together since that day back in the fall of 1995. Fast forward to today……we have two beautiful daughters, a black lab, a kooky cat and a busy life and business that we are proud and happy to share with all of you. I am proud to say that I have never been a fair-weather sports fan. I was born and raised an Oakland Raiders fan (this is where you can hiss and spit and laugh if you want) and will be one until the day the team, or I, is no longer around. I am also a follower and fan of the Oakland A’s and the Golden State Warriors (hmmmmm all Bay Area teams….hmmmm). I love to play golf and jump at the opportunity to play new courses. I am a fan of red wine, stout beers, Baskin & Robbins peanut butter & chocolate ice cream and for some weird reason mathematics. Go figure. My music choices range anywhere from the Doors and the Dead to Coldplay to Bob Marley to Rick Braun. Pretty much all over the place.

Hopefully my brief history didn’t bore to many of you. I am sure there will be a lot more to come and I am looking forward to being a part of this side of the business.Thanks for reading.
