Over Veteran’s Day weekend Lisa Ng and I went backpacking in Desolation Wilderness, a mountain cathedral of “carved granite, alpine forests, and pristine peaks.”  On the shore of Lake Aloha in the serenity and solitude of the Sierra backcountry we both love I asked her to marry me.  Despite dragging her out in the cold of late Autumn, she said yes!

There’s a lot of changes over the horizon for the two of us.  I recently accepted a new position with AT&T in Atlanta as Director of Strategic Pricing for our Consumer Insights business – AT&T”s business to externally monetize what we know about our customers.  So come January I’ll be picking up my life and moving it to Atlanta, into a condo that I just purchased.  Lisa will be teaching as SF State for one more semester before following me to Atlanta, where we are excited to explore a new part of the country and embark on many new adventures together.
