Hi there!

Just a quick update: I’m in Budapest, but not for much longer.  I just turned in my two-week notice and will be returning to Los Angeles shortly. (Details below)

From about March 17, I’ll be at
  101 North Grand Ave #16
  Pasadena, CA
  USA 91103

  +1 626 683 7562

That’s right, I’m leaving Pressflex.  The position of vice president of client relations turned out to be a combination graphic designer and sales person, and I was blocked from doing feature design or anything technical, which I enjoy and am experienced at.

So after some serious thought, I saw that Pressflex and I weren’t working out, and I’ve decided to try my luck elsewhere.  Pressflex might go on to success and a big IPO, but it’s time for me to move on.

I’ve heard from a few companies in Los Angeles that would like to get to know me, but I haven’t settled on a job yet.

I’m reachable in my Budapest apartment at, from the US:
  011 36 1 337 4468

I’ve been horribly remiss in my journal writing, but that will change in the immediate future.  So immediate, in fact, that it starts tonight.  If you want me to send you the latest installment of Travis’ adventures in Pasadena, Calgary, Montana, Paris, Amsterdam, the Wiltern Theatre, Griffith Park, Torrance and Santa Paula, just reply to this e-mail and say “YES, I WANT TO RECIEVE YOUR JOURNAL AND I ALSO KNOW IT’S I BEFORE E _EXCEPT_ AFTER C!”

I hope to talk to y’all soon, perhaps with news about new employment.  Unless you don’t want to hear from me again, in which case reply and let me know that as well.

“The sad truth is that most evil is done by people who never make up their minds to be good or evil.”

...who said it?

“Almost every American I know does trade large portions of his life for entertainment, hour by weeknight hour, binge by Saturday binge, Facebook check by Facebook check. I’m one of them. In the course of writing this I’ve watched all 13 episodes of House of Cards and who knows how many more West Wing episodes, and I’ve spent any number of blurred hours falling down internet rabbit holes. All instead of reading, or writing, or working, or spending real time with people I love.”

...who said it?

“Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.”

...who said it?

“I play with variables constantly.”

...who said it?

“Only the person who has learned Continual Love coming from a heart of Gratitude/Worship can effectively deal with the problem of loneliness.”

...who said it?
