The links on this website have no common thread, except me. I'm a husband to a Hungarian, father to two boys named after former US presidents, a foodie, former runner, audiophile, Eagle Scout, and a collector at heart (these days mostly watches, pocketknives, contemporary art). Interestingly, I've written or contributed three pages on Wikipedia; the pages on Poison Dart frogs, Mantella frogs, and the contemporary artist, James Siena.
Professionally, I have devoted myself to operations within the insurance industry. Originally, in life insurance, long term care, and annuities, and since 2015 in health insurance, and specifically around measuring and improving the service experience. My professional cv can be found on LinkedIn here.
In my free time, I love sharing my passions and knowledge through writing. I'm an occasional contributing editor to watchwatcha.com and a former writer for two audiophile publications.
I can be contacted via e-mail here.

Speaking of food, since I live in North Carolina, I'm a member of the Southern Foodways Alliance, which is all about documenting and celebrating southern foodways and food culture of yesterday and today.
I'm also a big fan of the Michelin Guide which is a great source for discovering world-class restaurants using a simple 3-star grading system - especially when traveling!
Concerning watches, in my spare time I'm part of the leadership team of the RedBar chapter in Raleigh, NC. RedBar is the largest group of watch collectors/enthusiasts across the globe. I'm also a moderator for one of the largest watch groups on Facebook, WATCHA. I've been very fortunate to own some wonderful watches over the years including ones from Audemars Piguet, Jaeger-leCoultre, Breguet, Rolex, Officine Paneri, Omega, Chronoswiss, Sinn, Universal Geneve, and Oris. Mechanical wristwatches have become a life-long passion.
With regard to art, I mostly collect smaller works, usually by nationally recognized American artists and the occasional local Southern artist. That said, I'm always down for some minimal art, southern ceramics, or admiring some brutalist architecture.
