So, who am I? That’s really not an easy question to answer, although you may think so. Who are we? Electrons and protons and neutrons held together by some quantum force to form neurons and cells and synapses? Are we flesh or are we soul? Isn’t this the stuff philosophers and scientists, monkeys and preachers have been asking for centuries?
If you’re looking for a quick biographical sketch of my life, here’s one for you: I have been–at different times, of course–a fry cook, range boy, greens maintenance technician, reservations agent, room service attendant, editor, banquet server, meteorologist, instructor, program manager for Internet applications, curriculum developer, training simulation engineer, leadership facilitator/coach, process improvement consultant and organizational psychologist.
Exciting stuff, to be sure. I once took flight on the wings of a F-16, but I puked. So, I usually don’t count that.
I am married to a wonderful and amazing woman, who is a counselor and a great supporter of my creative bug. I can’t be happier or more blessed. I also have five kids, two dogs and a cat.
All in all, the important thing to remember is that I am a creator. I have penned a few novels, deleted a few novels, edited a few novels and am, of course, writing a few novels. I have painted a few things, thrown a few paintings away, and probably have a painting on an easel right now. I love wood working, too.
It’s all about creating.
