A Passionate Reader’s Journey: From Dyslexic Child to Book Lover
A reader is born. That’s how I like to think of it. Because, really, that’s what happened. I was born a reader, but it wasn’t always easy. In fact, up until 4th grade, I hated school because I couldn’t read. But then something amazing happened: I learned to read and my world opened up. In…
A New Journey Has Begun…
I explored a number of areas that I’m passionate about but nothing has the ongoing and potential environmental, health, and community impact of food. The past 12 years working to transform the food supply chain has equipped me to question the fundamental assumptions of the current system.
Unintended Consequence…I love my daughter!
In 3 weeks of isolation, I’ve learned a lot about being a father, a dad and myself!
After 6 Months Off, It’s gotta’ be good! Right?
I wish I could say that I’ve taken the last 6 months to build up a backlog of witty, insightful posts that will blow your mind and leave you changed forever but that would be a HUGE lie! I’ve been eyeball deep in Freight Farms this entire year. I can’t say I regret it as…
Am I a better person?
This CarFreeBrad experiment turned lifestyle has been going for somewhere near 5 years and I’ve learned a lot during that time. Now that there’s been enough time, broken bikes, scrapes and experiences under my belt I’ve started to ask myself a compelling question. Has a bike first lifestyle made me a better person? When it…
Unfortunately, I let my domain lapse for a few weeks and just now have been able to get CarFreeBrad.com back online. It’s not “in action” yet. To actually create content is a bit more involved. But topics that are on my mind: How many riding days have been lost due to Boston’s winter? Does CarFreeBrad…
Dharmesh Shah has OnStartups….
I’ve Got CarFreeBrad & I love it! As a fan of Hubspot from a product/customer perspective, I’ve thought about Dharmesh’s founding story quite a few times, about how Hubspot got started partially out of his experience with his blog Onstartups while a student in Boston. Recently, I got to hear him tell the story at…
What Hell Is That……a dinosaur?
Sometimes in my carfree life journey, I wish my brain could just dump it all on the page because every time I try to write my fingers can’t keep up and it comes out as complete jibberish. I’ve been having one of those weeks! Although, I’m really excited some recent handlebar mods and eager to…
Everyone Else Is Doing It: CarFreeBrad Year in Review
No use trying to fight it. Everyone and their mother is doing a “Year in Review” or “Best of List” so I guess I’ll do that to but I’m not going to think about it and just freestyle a post about 2012! First, I can’t believe this CarFreeBrad thing is still going! I started this…
Ok, I Might Need A Car
Today was a real challenge in the CarFreeBrad world, actually the last few days have driven me to question my resolve to remain CarFree for the foreseeable future. Ironically, this internal struggle has nothing to do with any of the CarFree issues and challenges the last few days has brought to the forefront but the…
