What’s in My Bag?

Inspired by the Verge, I offer my gear list. I currently use two bags for travel – depending on how long the trip is and what I need. Inside my STM Velo 2 Small is the current gear:

Empowering Lives International
One of My Best Days: Empowering Live International

This is a blurry image, but one of my best days.  It was the day we pulled into Ilula, Kenya, home of Empowering Lives International,  and were greeted by 101 orphans singing to us in Swahili and bringing us flowers.  As we shook each one of their hands, they said, “Welcome Home”.  It wrecked me. We stayed at ELI for a week shooting video, writing, speaking and serving.  We went home with a huge hole in our hearts not only for Africa but for ELI as well.  You can see a few more pics in our “ELI Photoset” on Flickr.  Consider partnering with them.  They are the real deal.  Find out more here:  http://empoweringlives.org

Home Office

This is a pic of my home office in Michigan.  My staff and I wrote an article on how we work from home offices and it was published in Home Office Shuffle.  You can read more about how we work in a virtual environment as well as take a look at my Flickr gallery with interactive notes to see the details of the tools I use.

Motorcycle Rides
Motorcyle Rides

One of my favorite things to do is ride my motorcycle.  Its one of the few times the noise of life is drowned out and I can just be.  I’ve tried to find a hobby for years.  I’ve tried golf, kayaking, running, sports leagues, and more.  I finally found my sweet spot.  This is me and one of my closest friends, Chad. He’s the closest thing i have to a brother and between he and my wife, the reason I love riding.
