Hindsight – 11/13/10 – After Nine Years

ACbert, Hindsight, Relationships No Comments by Tom Krieglstein

After being together for nine years, it’s exciting for me to know that I’m still discovering new stuff about Annie. Today we watched Big Fish at the Sony Technology Center. Anyone who knows the film, knows if you don’t cry at the end you are not human. In the dark theater we teared up along […]

Hindsight – 10/24/10 – Sign Language Lovers

Hindsight, Love, Relationships No Comments by Tom Krieglstein

On my flight home today, the couple in front of me spoke to each other in sign. Though I had a bunch of work to do, I couldn’t keep my eyes off their conversation. It was filled with facial expressions, body movements, eye contact, and of course lots of hand gestures. All the external clues […]

Spending one month on the NBC Today Show Race To The Alter gave Annie and I a very tiny taste of what reality TV is like. I can only image what the experience was like for Ali to be this season's Bachelorette. Ali and I first met at Stanford University working for Supercamp. It was […]

Revisiting APCA

APCA is hosting their annual NYC Leadership Conference this weekend and since I only work a few blocks from the Times Square conference headquarters, a drop by was in order. I haven’t attended any APCA conferences for over a year because Red Rover’s growth has taken 100% of our resources. In 2008 and 2009 we […]

Understanding Fairness in a Partnership

Fairness is a word that comes up often in conversations between me and Kevin about our partnership in Swift Kick.
