Okay, you probably want to know about me. So, my bio in brief: Until I was 7, I grew up in a ghetto on the South Side of Chicago, which started to make me a little too slick for my own good, but we moved out of there just in time – to a small, idyllic Midwestern town. I suddenly found myself living in a Normal Rockwell painting – but it was cool. I pulled straight A’s in school, and spent all of my free time either playing sports or hiking in the woods with my dog. Great life, until I got out of high school, at which point the town felt REAL small, and it was time to start traveling. Eventually I settled down in San Francisco at 25 and had the time of my life, doing business by day, playing in a punk rock band at night (usually coming to gigs straight from work, so while my bandmates were….rough-looking, I was the guy onstage in the Armani), and making lots of eccentric friends.
I've often taken off for months at a time to go live in new places, just to get to experience a new culture and way of living - Tokyo, Hong Kong, Paris, Bangkok, Manhattan....
I spent years starting and managing sales/marketing projects, and am retired from business. I now spend my days managing investments, doing charity work, and pursuing my life-long dream of being a failed novelist.
I’m slowly recovering from an old surfing injury (inner ear) that got made worse by a recent bad attempt at medical treatment for it, so for now, I'm very sensitive to sudden noises, and have to avoid them. I’m used to going everywhere and meeting lots of fun characters in the process, but for a while, I have to be in very quiet environments. It’s limiting, but it is what it is, and it’s my opportunity to learn how life can change on a dime, and to gain compassion for others who have had much worse things happen to them.
