I am on a quest to become a modern renaissance man. I’m not all that smart, I just ask a lot of questions.
Life is too damn precious to live without some interesting tales, so here is my attempt at life examined. I collect stories and life experiences. My life is my career, so now I invest everything I’ve got into my job.
My boyhood hometown is your typical, all american rural town, about a forty-three mile stones throw south from the city of Chicago. I left for the city the first chance I got and just about never looked back. There’s too much in this world to stick yourself in one small corner.
This blog is my memoir of sorts, for my future grandchildren.
That’s me, age six.
In Chicago I completed a BA in History with a specialization in African-American History. In New Zealand I studied visual arts for a year. In San Diego I completed an MA in Teaching with a concentration in multiculturalism and diversity in education. Though like Twain, I prefer to not let my schooling interfere with my education.
I think that’s about it. Please feel free to connect with me anytime at firstname.lastname@example.org
I’m certain I’d like to meet you.
Oh, I also co-write on a joint travel blog with my delightful girlfriend over at Boheme Love.
