I graduated high school and became a clean-hippy, hitch-hiking and bike-touring around the country and meeting people who changed my life.
Hippyness didn't fit, so I went to college and spent some of my existence as a cubicle dwelling engineer.
A year and a half ago I left cubicle-land to start my own engineering consultancy. It was one of the best decisions of my life. In the last year, I was able to travel through the Caribbean, go on a backpacking trip along the Sonora Pass, spend a week in El-Salvador, take a road trip to the Grand Canyon and Las Vegas, all while making enough money to live life.
I am an adventurer. I realize that I only get to live this life once and so I am going to get off my ass and wiggle it some. Maybe if I wiggle enough the ground will shake.
