SloPro – 60fps Slow Motion Video – Just blew my mind

Posted on September 4th, 2012

I just wanted to jot down a quick note about this app because its about to transform the way I analyze my golf swing. Until now, I was using V1 Golf, an awesome app for iOS, and I’ve also been using SwingReader. Both are great for being able to add plane lines, check angles and control slow motion video of your swing …. at 30 FPS. 30 is great and… Continue reading >

Why the Swingbyte will be this year’s best new golf product

Posted on January 29th, 2012

I haven’t used the Swingbyte yet and its not even available to pre-order, but I haven’t been this excited about a new product coming to market since the iPhone. Launching in April, the $149 Swingbyte will transform the insight, analytics, and information you can get about your golf swing. Outside, inside, with your instructor, by yourself, even without a ball, this product just might give you the clearest picture you’ve… Continue reading >

Apps top the browser, but a mobile career site is still the foundation

Posted on January 3rd, 2012

For the first time, mobile users opened up native apps more than we used our mobile browsers. 44.9% of us used mobile apps compared to 44.4% of mobile subscribers that used the browser (I use both), according to data from comScore’s November mobile subscriber report. I’m not really surprised by this report, in fact I’m a bit surprised it is still this close. For one thing, the two most popular… Continue reading >

Breaking 80: Year end recap on my progress

Posted on January 1st, 2012

What a year for golf. As I mention at the top of the Golf section of my site, this past year I got a bit obsessed with improving my game. I decided a couple things: 1) I needed a hobby 2) Golf was it and if I wanted to really improve and have a chance to hit great golf shots, I needed to devote myself to it now (while I’m… Continue reading >

Slides & Overview: From Lab Dreams to Real Solutions

Posted on May 31st, 2011

I was honored and excited to be asked to lead a session at the May 2011 Recruiting Innovation Summit at LinkedIn HQ.  ERE (and specifically @TheLance) put on a great summit and all the presentations brought exciting and thought-provoking ideas the attendees. I enjoyed putting this presentation together and had a blast presenting with Tomya Ryans, who shared some dynamite thoughts and answers during Q&A.  If you couldn’t attend or just… Continue reading >

The Masters iPad Application is a Must for All Golf Lovers

Posted on April 4th, 2011

If I say the word “Azalea” or “Dogwood” or “Magnolia” and you immediately think about The Masters and Augusta National Golf Club, then download The Masters iPad App ($1.99 iTunes link). Before I start into this, if you don’t have an iPad, check out The Masters Website because many of these features, such as Live Video, are available on the site. The Masters week is one of my favorite weeks… Continue reading >

Coming Soon No More

Kicking this off at SXSW

Posted on March 31st, 2011

Look at that, I just wrote the first words of the first post on a site that has taken me almost 3 years to take live. It hasn’t taken 3 years because of some highly advanced code magic going on in the background (this is a hosted WordPress site), its taken me 3 years to start writing because I kept finding excuses .. and because I had a “Coming Soon”… Continue reading >

About Me

I'm the Vice President of Digital Innovation and Mobile, which is probably the coolest job title out there. You can learn more about my work in emerging technology on the About or Work Pages.

As for this site, it's a place where I can jot ideas down and share some of the stuff I'm working on. The views are my own and some of them might not make much sense, but hey, that's part of the process. I'm also working toward being a single digit handicap golfer, so I post a lot about my golf game.
