Wearer of many hats

As I commented in yesterday's video I wear many hats through each day. I can be designer, boss, welder, mudder, sculpter, painter, grampa, father or a hundred other things. Hailey grabbed this picture as I tried on a new hat a few days ago. 

In the Caribbean this might be just the right hat.

Travel day

I really enjoy travel. Today started leisurely with a bit of a sleep-in and a good breakfast. Then it was off to the Orlando airport to turn in the rental car and head through security. The flight to Trinidad was only four hours but it was another hour getting through immigration and security in Trinidad. An hour time difference plus the journey to the hotel meant the day was pretty much over when we arrived.

Tomorrow will be exciting, starting with a site visit and then a series of meetings with the architect, contractors and the landscaper. 

As we touched down in Trinidad it brought a reality to the project we've already been working on for a long time. My last visit was a year ago but things felt familiar and this time I knew the landmarks enough to get my bearings as we drove. This is going to be FUN!

Stay tuned for more reports...

A day in the life...

TJ Galmut worked for us about a year. Like many who come he had dreams of his own and when the time was right he moved on to persue those dreams. He is currently attending a film school to learn the craft of film making. One of his assignments was to create a documentary and we were delighted when he asked is he could do a short documentary on our company. He was given free reign to capture the company and team he knew so well.

In the last weeks he has periodically stopped in with all kinds of fancy equipment, interviewing the crew and filming our tasks. With TJ's kind permission I present the fun documentary that he made... 

Thank you TJ and all the crew too!
