Emily Baron Painting

It’s been a while since I last wrote in this blog. Back in December, I left Rejuvenan Global Health to join a new team at NBCUniversal on a project called TVEverywhere. Since joining, I’ve learned quite a bit about the importance of Continuous Delivery and where it fits into the daily operations of a product team. Also, I’m spending some outside time learning ExpressJS and the React ecosystem (React Native, React, GraphQL, etc). I’m interested in how quickly apps can be built, deployed, monitored, and updated in this strange Javascript world. My time of ignoring Javascript’s dominance is over, time to evaluate the “new spice”.

Aside from technical things, I’m about to turn 25 years old (in roughly 16 days). I feel a sense of accomplishment for making it this far in life, but I’m not sure where this new number fits in my life. Maybe this feeling will go away, I’d like to write about that. I’ve been putting off writing for a long time now. My girlfriend, Emily, has tried pushing me to write more often, but I haven’t made it a priority in my life. Recently though, Emily started getting into painting, which has kickstarted some writing inspiration. We’ll see how it goes this year.
