Greet met Old Man Markley. She brought them Belgian waffles and Brussels sprouts, they were buying it. That was the beginning.
I was born somewhere, and then grew up. Along the way I went to a prestigious college where I learned about important things. Like legislation. Then I lived in different cities and worked for different famous and important people. Then I ended up where I am now. And this is where I do stuff. I’ve gotten a bunch of appreciation for some of that stuff. I hope to continue doing stuff for sometime now.
My family took many trips and each began with my father getting in our Mini Oldtimer, starting the car and then being overcome by my mom's urge to hit the bathroom, while in the back, my little brother and I fought to the sweet tunes of The Osmonds and Vaya Con Dios.
This is important because we took epic journeys like this once a year for five years, and it must be when I began to love traveling. And The Beatles.
My mother brought a camera on these trips. When we returned home, she projected beautiful slide shows for friends and family. The shows were rarely boring, even for a ten-year-old, and it must be because she was a good editor. My dad was also a meticulous recorder, noting all expenses and charting maps that he still has today. I inherited some of this meticulousness.
My mantra goes something like this: Do what you love, love what you do, and work with others who do the same.
