Some things I've done: Peace Corps, climbed Masada, drove a motorcycle from Kuala Lumpur to Penang, and stayed in the Imperial Hotel in Tokyo (on somebody else's dime of course). And I've had real jobs too.
My most recent career was with an international development agency in Washington. I have an MBA and worked in the corporate world for a while, but never quite fit in. My dream job was to be a professional soccer player.
And good news - I'm financially independent, so you don't have to worry about me draining your 401K.
