From the beginning of the summer...

On May 5th, 2008 I started a new job after graduating the month before from BYU in Provo, UT. I was hired by a company called DealerSocket based in San Clemente, CA as a consultant--absolutely nothing to do with my degree in travel and tourism. People always thought I would be living in CA eventually, and well, there I was. I got a place 3 blocks from the beach in Huntington Beach, made some friends and started working hard.
In time I bought a camera and started taking pictures of things I did and things I saw. In about 3 short months that flew by, I was able to do and see some awesome things. I spent time in Boston, Detroit, Chicago, Kentucky, Kansas, Utah, Arkansas, Milwaukee, and so on. On the weekends I spent my time on the beach getting a tan, trying to surf, hanging out with friends, visiting my cousins, and doing just about anything I could find. I really loved every moment that I had there, and look forward to being able to visit again in the future, if not move back (hey, you never know).

Let's get started...

People have been asking me to start a blog for a while now. I didn't see why. "But Mark, you travel every week with your job. We want to know where you are and what you are doing. There has to be something interesting going on with all that travel." Ok, fine, I guess that is good enough reason, so to appease those who want this (and annoy those that don't), I have started my blog. Hopefully it will be something of interest to you, and something that is also entertaining. I have a few ideas of things I will post, but I can always use your feedback. I'll start with a few things that have already come and gone, just to get you up to date. Then I'll start with there here and now and we'll go from there.

I have a love of photography as well, so along with talking about what is going on in my life I am going to put up different pictures I have taken. I hope that you like them and that I can continue to improve in my photographic abilities.
