The United Kingdom

I spent the last week in the UK on business with meetings in Oxford and Cambridge. Katie had never been to London so we flew over for the preceding weekend just to soak it up a bit. In the security line at the Houston airport we bumped into Mike Unton, another Lovett alum, which wasContinue reading “The United Kingdom”

Poken One-Year Anniversary

December 8th was the one-year anniversary of my start with Poken. I can’t believe it, that really seems lifetimes ago. What a roller coaster ride it was: arriving just as we launched the product commercially, working feverishly to update the product to meet the massive surge of initial demand, building a team quickly to keepContinue reading “Poken One-Year Anniversary”

Arizona

Christmas season has officially begun! Last weekend Katie, my mom, and I flew to Arizona for a “pre-Christmas” celebration with Katie’s family. I had never been to Arizona before and found it to be pretty nice. The trip started off on a strange note, though: as we left Houston on Friday, it was actually SNOWING!Continue reading “Arizona”

Some of these topics wereContinue reading “Space . . . The Final Frontier”

All active, engaged members of the Rice community should familiarize themselves withContinue reading “Rice-Baylor Update”

The last two weeks have been very, very active and full of milestones. At enistic, we’ve secured our first investors, our first resellers/installers/distributors, and–perhaps most importantly–our first clients! We still have a way to go to raise the money we need really to get this venture off the ground but this early momentum is very,Continue reading “Milestones”

GoWear fit

Having completed one week with the GoWear fit on my arm nearly 24 hours/day, I now have enough data to begin drawing conclusions about its usefulness. I’ll break down my review into nutrition, exercise energy expenditure, non-exercise energy expenditure, and sleep. Nutrition GoWear Fit’s nutrition functionality is hardly unique. It provides a web-based mechanism forContinue reading “GoWear fit”

Sound Body, Sound Mind

This was a busy, but exciting week at Enistic Inc! We secured our first client–an office building owner here in Houston–and now we’re ready to raise some money to get started. This will be my first time leading a capital raise as my previous companies were either bootstrapped or had other officers in charge ofContinue reading “Sound Body, Sound Mind”
