I'm pretty modest, and not really good at self-promotion. Plus I don't like the idea of just talking/writing without really knowing who's on the other side listening. You wouldn't just face a wall and start describing yourself to it …. or maybe you would, but I wouldn't. I'd rather have a dialogue than a monologue if that makes sense. But thats the internet for you, and I need to get with the times. Or so I've been told. So….
Born and raised here in SF. Yes we exist, and yes we're all related, or might as well be. I started working when I was pretty young and after high school l got a little sidetracked from the educational high road. I traveled for most of my 20's and ended up sailing around Southeast Asia and the Pacific for a lot of those years. There was a lot of land travel during that time, and plenty of adventures as well as misadventures. But I'm no die hard hiker, climber, camper, outdoorsman. I've slept in the bottom of a small sailboat bobbing across the Southern ocean in the middle of a storm; covered in diesel and saltwater, freezing my nuts off. And I've slept on a goose-down mattress with silk sheets in a 5-star resort. The former only makes me appreciate the latter that much more. Variety is the spice of life, so the saying goes.
Logic, problem solving, science, business, those are my strong points. I think the right side of my brain was asleep for the first 25 years of my life and my left side over compensated. I had to see and do a lot before I started realizing and appreciating the importance of art, creativity, and all those other things you right-brainers know so much about. It's awesome trying to see things from different perspectives, and I'm really enjoying learning and growing from my interactions and experiences with people who have completely different ways of thinking than myself.
I've always enjoyed working for myself, and goals and challenges are what drive me. Whether it's financial or personal I always need something to work towards and luckily we live in a place where determination and hard work pay off. I think that's more than enough for now.
