Inspired by Derek Sivers as seen from many others, this is an insight into what Iโ€™m doing and thinking about right now.

Last updated: 2 Aug 19.

The most important thing Iโ€™m doing right now is continuing to recover from and deal with my OCD. I am working to strike the right balance between my personal, family, professional, and spiritual lives.

My day job is mobile manager at O.C. Tanner where I am lucky to lead a great team building world-class iOS apps. I am becoming more and more comfortable calling myself a manager instead of a developer and am learning to find creative fulfillment outside of the code.

I also publish some of my own apps on the side through my business BSN Design. These are basically on hold right now as I focus on my mental health and family.

One of my biggest hobbies is sketchnoting, and I post at and, although again I am taking something of a break.
