It’s been a few years since I’ve maintained a site, so no promises on fresh content.  Most exciting happenings of the past 3 years include my new nephew and godson, Marley Devin Holzer; Josh and Jake visiting Portland; and my various trips visiting family, friends and solo road-trips.
 
2007 marks my 6th year in Portland.  I’m not sure what’s more surprising - that I only planned on being here 2 years and haven’t left or that I’ve fallen in love with this city.  Over the years here I’ve started a company, closed a company and bootstrapped web “softwares” for two companies from scratch.
 
This year I’m looking forward to a 10 year reunion, securing a passport and traveling outside the US ... that trip around the world is only 5 years over due and 13 years making web sites and applications is wearing. (Hence using the Mac “iWeb” to make new site.)
