Who are yoU? And TMI about me


I mean Really, who are you. What do you like to do? What are your natural skills? Were you born with a guitar in one hand and a mic in the other? Who are yoU?


I cover my head in the winter and I love to read.


As for me, I am really really good at getting stuff done. No matter what. As children, we all knew our parents view on driving their cars. My folks worked long and hard for their vehicles & there was no way they were going to let one of the four of us crash one of their cars. So at sixteen, I took matters into my own hands ... got myself a job (which my folks drove me to) and bought my first car a month after my eighteenth birthday, three months before my high school graduation.

I continued to work for a mass retailer in the camera department to pay for design school, although it was so pricey, I had to wait a year after High School before I could actually attend. I graduated in 1985 with a 3.5 GPA.


While working full time, little ole me decided to buy & renovate my first home. How did I do this? By cleaning office buildings at night.


A big dreamer, but even A bigger doer.  Yet, with the loss of  my parents to remind me of who I really am, I almost forgot.


This spot, this little space on this World Wide Web ... has helped me to clear the dust, while reminding me of my own personal greatness.


What about yoU, who are yoU really?
