40 under 40

Wow, I can’t believe I didn’t announce this on my blog, what was I thinking!

Last year I was fortunate enough to be named one of the top 13 IT Pros in the Philadelphia region by the Philadelphia Business Journal.

This year I was doubly fortunate to be named one of the top 40 under 40 in Philadelphia by the Philadelphia Business Journal.

I’m honored to be joining the ranks of people who seem way above me! (They say surround yourself with people smarter than you, right?). It’s really great to be recognized for my efforts, and my goal remains the same, improve myself and the lives of the people around me, and keep trying new things.

I had a conversation with one of my mentors recently, as I was apprehensive about what I was doing (referring to investing my time and money in to ReplyWire). Here is the conversation

Mentor: “If you weren’t working on this project, what would you be doing?”
Me: I thought about that for a little bit, and responded “I’d probably end up working somewhere, and being bored…”
Mentor: “Well, this is what you signed up for”


Moral is, if you want to reach for something, you’re going to have to take the risk of giving it all you have.

Everything will be alright in the end. If it’s not alright, it’s not the end
