My Projects

It seems my brain is always churning out something new. Below are projects I'm either working on or thinking about. In addition to these, I have a couple of other ideas cooking up in my head right now, but they are in their infancy and won't see the light of day any time soon :)

glishen is my baby and I'm really excited to talk about it. glishen is an anagram of "English" and we are cooking up something new and really exciting for the worldwide TEFL industry (teaching English as a foreign language). In the simplest of terms, our goal is to be the "LinkedIn" for the industry, jobs, resources, forum, networking, etc., etc. Check out the site for more. We're pretty proud of it!

Sometimes when I leave my home, I take two apples with me. When I see someone on the street begging for money, I ask them if they would like to have an apple today. If they do, I'll give them one of my two apples, and if they don't mind, I'll eat the other one myself, while having a conversation with them, listening to whatever they have to say. Afterwards I'll post the encounter at Why? Because I believe everyone has a story, and people on the street are as human as the rest of us. Maybe they would like to share their story with someone, maybe they would just like someone to listen to them.

My first apple went to Tim, and you can read the story here :)

You've had a crappy day. Maybe it's raining. You're sad, perhaps even lonely. One thing's for sure: You need a smile. Nothing can replicate the feeling of being in someone's arms, mixing hugs and snuggles, but wants to help you as best we can.

Maybe for you, a huggl is a nice video, a delightfully delicious song, a sweet poem or a beautiful short story. Maybe it's a joke, a quote or a fun website. Whatever it is, we want to help you discover it, and to help you share what makes you smile in the hope that it will bring a smile to someone else when they need it most.

In a world where we are constantly bombarded with negativity, huggls are greatly needed. We hope you'll join us on our mission to spread'm. So, since you're here, there's no better time than now to have a huggl on us!

Out of all the ideas I've had, next to glishen, Circle excites me the most. Sharing is caring, and Circle is all about connecting people and helping people. While I have it outlined pretty well in my head, it's a long way from seeing the light of day. It's a pretty big commitment in terms of programming time, and just not something I have the resources for right now. But stay tuned. It's gonna be awesome!
