  • Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania is known as the "City of Bridges" and famous for it's delicious Heinz Ketchup. It is also where I have grown up and I have certainly grown to love it. I know that "yinz" will too! We are really big on sports here in Sixburgh (the only city with six Superbowl victories),...

  • Ladies and gentleman, I have the solution—the solution to the problem you never admitted you had. Namely: majestic hair. I can hear you scoffing, my friends, but I assure you that it’s quite all right to confess it. After all, each one of us has, at some point in life, glanced at a shampoo model or...

  • The trip started with a day in San Diego, California before boarding buses to cross the border into Mexico. Once we crossed the border, the change of scenery was immediate and shocking.

  • July 13, 2010 and my trip begins. I awake at 2:00 a.m. for the road trip of a lifetime. My family and I hit the road for Raleigh, N.C. where I will meet up with my USA team for 3 days of intense training before flying over to Sweden. The early morning hours do not let me see much of the countryside...

  • This year, for our annual family reunion, we traveled to Virginia Beach to meet our family that lives there.  The plan was for all of my dad's side of the family to meet. However, due to family feuding, it was just my dad and his brother’s families because my dad's sister and my grandpa had...

  •             “Now, friends, we are going to the Stupid Pagodas in Dali!” exclaimed our new tour guide through the screeching microphone system as we depart from the Dali Airport. I thought to myself, it’s Stupor Pagodas! as the bus jerked while the driver shifted gears. It was day 5 of our China...

  •    In April of 2008, I took a vacation to Washington, D.C. for the National Young Leaders Conference.
