Checking in, and checking out.

Hey all, how are you? I hope you're doing well.

It's been a while, so I thought I'd go ahead and poke my head out from the muck to let everyone know we're still breathing. It's been a tumultuous few months here for us. We're in the midst of a lot of changes and, to be honest, it's been kind of scary - but also kind of exciting. We've had to make a lot of big, difficult decisions. It may take some time, but I know that these changes will be for the best, for us and for our work.

We'll have more to share with you soon, but until then, it's back into the muck for this old Joe. Wish me luck!

Without going into detail, I've been dealing with a lot of issues in my personal life that have left me anywhere from distracted to horribly, thoroughly, exhausted. It's prevented me from talking about work as openly as I would have liked, and for that I apologize. Despite this, work has been going very well, if quietly, and with the worst (hopefully) behind me, I fully intend on opening up the proverbial Pandora's box.


Let's go ahead and open that thing!
