I’m currently living in the city of Atlanta in the Grant Park neighborhood. I’m a little biased, but it’s definitely the best neighborhood in the best city in the world.
Activities I’m Doing Now
Spending lots of time with my wife, 7 year old son, 1 year old son and our families (I have 2 new niblings!). Day to day life is a the predictably unpredictable flurry of parenting, work, and daily living.
I run my own solo business with a little help from my sister (who is living in India). I generally either work from home, from one of Atlanta’s amazing libraries or from a co-working space in Downtown Atlanta.
My business revolves around digital marketing with a focus on content & search engine optimization. I do some “white-label” work in addition to client consults. But most of my time is spent running ShivarWeb.com – my marketing education website in addition to working on my marketing podcast, Bamboo Chalupa, and projects elsewhere.
I had been really into running (especially trail, half, and full marathons), but ever since kid #2 was born, I’ve been doing more strength training – and even some swimming (at the amazing MLK Recreation Center in the Old Fourth Ward). I’m not registered for many events, but am enjoying running with no training pressure. In September, I’m going to run the unique 5k on the 5th Runway at Hartsfield-Jackson.
I’m also spending a bit of time hiking & camping as often as possible – and visiting all the museums & parks in Georgia.
