Shameless Self Promotion
Zork on Alexa
Some of you may know that I’m a bit of a techy nerd on the side. To that end, I’ve been working on AI and specifically Alexa skills for a while now. If you don’t know who Alexa is, she’s Amazon’s version of Siri. A virtual...

Eric is actually an LAX OG, but had to move around a bit because of work and only came back to us earlier this year. He’s almost back to his total bad ass form from before work got in the way, so some of you may have started noticing his times on the board. It’s great to have him...
Brenda shared the video below with me on the Facebook, and I wasn’t surprised that it went as viral as it did. Talk about a motivating woman – James Hobart’s mom is amazeballs!!!
