Look between the cold pillars of concrete holding up the earth and you’ll find me flowering there.
A nomadic upbringing whisked me through 13 schools in nine years, from the dusty deserts of Arizona to the snowy villages of Germany, with back road trips through 23 countries around Europe and the Mediterranean. Somewhere along the way I learned to play guitar and spent a few years swinging from a trapeze in a pair of purple pants, dodging pyrotechnics with a Fender Stratocaster in one hand and a bottle of cheap wine in the other. After nearly dying from the Rock & Roll lifestyle, I came to Jesus, earned an engineering degree in the US, spent 17 years with IBM, got married, had three kids, and settled down. Not being one for routine or life in a cubicle, in 2000 I left the corporate world to became an entrepreneur, which means I fail often, win sometimes, meet a lot of amazing people, and am having a grand time steering my cosmic riverboat upriver. I’m glad YOU came onboard for a spell!
It’s a great life!
