A couple days ago I was talking to a coworker about lost opportunities. I was telling a story about the fantastic, often crazy ideas, I would come up with for trade show exhibits. This included the cruise ship I thought up once, a 20’x40′ deck of a ship, complete with wood decking, lounge, portholes and […]


Um, What Was The Question Again?

Posted by admin on May 1, 2017 in Working Daze

There’s both a good side and down side to being on your own for a long time. When it comes to working, I have been pretty much working nonstop for my entire career. I’ve had only one break in service, that being three months that I purposely took off during one particular summer to recharge […]


It’s In The Mail.

Posted by admin on March 2, 2015 in Working Daze

My career path has been amazingly compressed. The Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates that the average worker will have seven different careers in their lives. I’ve had three. You see, I never held a job when I was in high school. My mom wouldn’t let me, saying that school was my job and that I […]


My Way Or The Skyway.

Posted by admin on January 13, 2014 in Working Daze

There was a time when luggage was made in the United States. In fact, the last of the great luggage manufacturers was right here in Seattle, turning out luggage for more than a century. If you’ve ever had a piece of Skyway Luggage then you know of this legendary company. They were quite the innovators […]


It Could Have Been Eventful.

Posted by admin on April 15, 2013 in Working Daze

Part of my duties in my new role in the state is to design the various exhibits we do overseas to promote Washington as a great place to do business. In many respects life has come full circle, since that’s what I used to do when I was in the corporate world before stepping into […]


The Walk Of Shame.

Posted by admin on November 26, 2012 in Working Daze

I have only done the walk of shame once. I know how unpleasant it can be and it’s not exactly something I want to do again. I suppose it was only made more embarrassing because it was entirely unexpected. I thought things were going great. We were getting along, I was really doing a magnificent […]


It’s What I Do.

Posted by admin on November 2, 2012 in Working Daze

It’s been a little over six months since packed it all in and up and moved back to Seattle. And it’s been a little bit more than six months since I started by job with the state. So, I thought I’d take a moment to talk about what I do, a “state of the union,” […]

Yes, you read right. My child, my spawn, is on my sh** list right now. No, it’s not because of the money I have ended up owing the IRS over the years. It’s all paid up (as far as I know). Sometimes my baby makes more money than I think it does and I don’t […]


Otis The Hutt.

Posted by admin on August 23, 2012 in Working Daze

My very first boss in communications was Annette. I both loved and loathed her at the same time. She was a brilliant writer who thought she could write circles around me. She could at the beginning, but it wasn’t long before I was turning circles around her. Perhaps that’s what made her so hard on […]


It’s In The Mail.

Posted by admin on August 14, 2012 in Working Daze

When I graduated from college, I was sure that the world would beat a path to my door. Who wouldn’t want to hire me for a cushy job in public relations or marketing. I guess they were using a different path back then because I didn’t even get my foot in the door. I was […]
