I've worked hard over the years running a technology business for the past couple decades employing (and keeping motivated) over 60 of the smartest consulants around. The hard work pays off in providing me the financial freedom to play hard as well.
I do public speaking somewhere in the world every couple weeks, something that I enjoy experiencing the culture, the foods, the lifestyles of different counties and people, and the richness it brings to the world.
I've enjoyed education my entire life formally studying everything from politics to economics, applied mathematics to English literature military strategy to Renaissance history. I volunteer my time running a Bay Area university, teaching masters and doctoral courses, supporting a space sciences museum, doing diplomatic work for the US government. All of my volunteer works keeps my brain going and keeps my fingers into the things that interest me outside of my day to day career...
My life is further enriched by the opportunity of being a full time single dad caring for my 2 kids 24x7 and the ability for me to share int'l travel and all of my hobbies and interests with them! Life is so much better when one can share life experiences with others, and seeing my kids learn and experience news things is so rewarding!
