Cheers to 2019! Bring on 2020!

Thanks for the memories 2019. You were a good one.

2019 wasn't without some struggles, but there were several huge wins that I'll never forget. One of the things that I started in earnest in 2019, that led to one of the most dramatic changes in my life, was live-streaming on Twitch. In addition to the amazing people I met, it awakened a passion in me to help others succeed which led to a career change. In the last quarter of the year, I started as a Developer Advocate at Nexmo. So now I get to learn, teach and help others succeed and get paid for it!

So yeah, 2019's been a good one, but let's see how I did versus the goals I set to start the year and plan some goals for 2020.
