Moose deserves a tremendous amount of credit for his 2.5 years as co-AOQ. Thank you very much for that service Moose. I appreciate you, man.

I have been going to Depot for almost four and a half years and the men that constitute Depot have had a profound impact on my life. I am following in the footsteps of giants (metaphorically obviously), and my hope is to carry on what they have built as this has been a great experience for me. I also hope to be fortunate enough to give that gift to others and hopefully get even more FNGs involved this year. We had some new(ish) faces today, and I appreciate all of you making the effort to get out of bed this morning. As we have talked about before, we don’t show up just for ourselves, we show up for the other men that will be there each morning. Thank you for showing up for me and the other 12 PAX this morning. Let’s keep this momentum going!

As for my plans as I take on this co-AOQ role, you can count on me for three things (let’s call it my leadership philosophy):

  1. Consistency – I had 168 posts last year (#nothumblebrag), the majority of which were at Depot. I hope to beat that number this year, so I plan on being at Depot every T/Th I am in town. Come join me. It is worth it.
  2. Support – If 2021 has taught me anything, it is that everyone encounters times when they need support. If you are struggling and would like someone to talk to, I am always available to listen. Please reach out either in person or through text/twitter. You are not alone and have people that want to help. Please use those resources.
  3. Tomfoolery – It wouldn’t be Depot without mumble chatter, nonsense, Moosin’ around, shenanigans, the Depot-through-the-tunnel-with-clap, etc., and that will not change on my co-watch as nonsense is my specialty (more people than I would like to admit would attest to this). As laughter is often the best medicine, let’s keep having a good time in 2022. Come join this goofball from Ohio and have some laughs while enjoying a beatdown courtesy of whomever has the Q every T/Th at the greatest AO there is—Depot.


Come get better with us.
