What inspires me about my job?
I absolutely love the idea and challenge of working at a company whose mission is to help people live happier lives - how does it get any better than that?
What motivates me in life?
To try and maximize life in all of its various aspects (not that it always happens that way!), and to try and help others do the same.
A quote I live by:
“One day you will wake up and there won't be any more time to do the things you've always wanted.” - Paulo Coelho
Favorite, most recent GoHappy moment:
My most recent GoHappy Moment was an RV trip out west during the summer of 2014 with my whole family (when the kids were 6, 4 and 2). Check out my wife's blog about our trip if you want a few good laughs.
Upcoming GoHappy plan I'm looking forward to:
I'd have to say my 10 year wedding anniversary trip this fall. We're headed to Sonoma for a few days - bring on the great wine and food!

What inspires me about my job?
It feels good to come to work every day and try to build products with the ultimate goal of helping people live happier lives. It's fun to work with great people and to try to solve hard problems, but it's a huge bonus to try to have a positive impact on people's lives.
What motivates me in life?
I love to try new things. It's exciting to take on a new task and try to figure out how to accomplish something that I've never done - both at work and at home. At home, I try taking on projects or cooking new foods (many times successfully). It's fun to do those kinds of things with my kids, too.
A quote I live by:
“Do or do not, there is no try.” - Yoda
Favorite, most recent GoHappy moment:
I love it when we go fishing on vacation every summer. It's great to teach my kids to fish.
Upcoming GoHappy plan I'm looking forward to:
We're planning our first Disney trip with the kids.

What motivates me in life?
I try to push and strive for great things within myself, but not at the expense of others.

“Your attitude, not your aptitude, will determine your altitude.” - Zig Ziglar
Favorite, most recent GoHappy moment:
I just recently became a new/first-time father. The feelings I've experienced over my wife's pregnancy through my son's birth were life-changing.
Upcoming GoHappy plan I'm looking forward to:
I'm going to the Masters in Augusta, GA for the first time. It's one of my bucket-list items.

What inspires me about my job?
Of course, our mission is inspiring, but it's more than that. I love the work that I do and being able to have an impact in shaping something fundamentally positive that helps connect people in a meaningful way is pretty cool.
What motivates me in life?
It depends on the day sometimes! I always want to be learning and growing as an individual and to help my daughter do the same. Most days, I end up learning more from her.
A quote I live by:
“Sometimes the smallest step in the right direction ends up being the biggest step of your life. Tip toe if you must. But take the step.” - Naeem Callaway
Favorite, most recent GoHappy moment:
Taking a trip to Australia. It was something I always wanted to do. We didn't have any reservations past the first night. We rented a car and just drove up the coast staying in different hostels near the beach and meeting people from all over the world. It was an awesome trip with so many fun memories. Plus, being on the other side of the world in a totally different time zone for 2 weeks is a great way to actually disconnect from your day-to-day stressors and relax.
Upcoming GoHappy plan I'm looking forward to:
It would be a toss-up between a get together with my college girlfriends and a trip with my Mom. My girlfriends and I all work full-time, have little ones at home and live in different areas. Scheduling for us is a challenge for sure, but time with them is good for my soul. The trip with my Mom is an (extremely) overdue birthday present. We've never really had a trip just the two of us so it will be great to just connect and hang out without distractions.

I've been working towards earning my Master's Degree in Computer Science by taking classes online over the last several years. If all goes well, I will graduate in December. I'm really looking forward to that!

Kayaking with my wife Regan on her birthday is up there. We explored the Huguenot Flatwater for the first time and had a blast!
