Dear Ari: Year 2

Dear Ari,  I’m having a hard time with this letter. I’ve started and restarted it so many times as I struggle to find the words to explain how much this past year has meant to me.  You’re the most fascinating thing I’ve ever come across. I could just sit there endlessly, watching you discover the world — the joy, wonder, and curiosity so clear in your eyes. I’ve caught myself staring at you for hours at a time, incredulous that …

Black Lives Matter: A Statement From Fracture CEO, Abhi Lokesh

Today we stand in grief, frustration, and horror at the pain that systemic racism has caused in our country. We mourn the lives of those we have lost to senseless violence. It is clear that something has to change. I don’t have the answers. Honestly, I feel unprepared to meet this moment. But we must try. We must recognize that …

I’m still really new at this gig, so cut me some slack — …

Resolutions

New Year’s Resolutions. We’ve all made them. They rarely stuck. Apparently it’s cool to say they’re not cool anymore. Call me an optimist, but I think the basic idea is a good one – as long as you don’t go overboard but instead keep your resolutions reasonable. No – you can’t learn French by February. Yes – you can close your eyes and take 5 deep breaths a day. Ultimately, I’m a fan of trying to get just a tiny …

What I Learned On My Summer Vacation

A few weeks ago, my wife and I got to go on a nice little summer vacation. This one was particularly special since it was also our honeymoon. Seeing how this getaway was a once-in-a-lifetime trip, we decided to indulge and venture abroad to a couple of destinations on our bucket list, namely Ireland, Paris, and London. Full of natural beauty, incredible history, record sunshine, and great food – it was the perfect adventure. We came back with unforgettable memories, …
