Back Again

Posted: June 1, 2022 in Insights

Well unfortunately life has been incredibly busy over the last few years between my full-time job and volunteer positions, so I haven’t had an opportunity to write much and keep my website up to date. I’m getting ready to embark on some new adventures so thought I’d take a moment to update on those things as I do them.

As far as general life updates, a global pandemic happened in 2020 and turned life upside down. During that time I lost my mom, an aunt and uncle, and one of our 4 legged babies (Sophie.) It has been an incredibly challenging time but I’m still here and will make it somehow.

If the pandemic and all these loses taught us anything, it’s that life is short and it’s time to live. My wife and I are taking as many opportunities as we can to get away together, even if it’s just for the weekend. All we have left when we leave is our memories and we’re trying to make sure we have enough of those for a lifetime.

In June of 2020 I was appointed as the Santa Rosa County ARES (Amateur Radio Emergency Service) Emergency Coordinator. In this role I ensure that Santa Rosa County Emergency Management has the support it needs from us should normal communications methods, such as cellular and internet, fail from a natural disaster or other issue.

As of December 2021, I was additionally appointed as the Section ARES Emergency Coordinator for Northern Florida. In this role, I help ensure that all of our section county ARES teams have the resources they need to support themselves locally and develop training and exercise activities to move us forward.

Lots of things on the horizon and hopefully I’ll have time to write about them all.
