About Me Single guy from Mickeytown USA, aka Orlando Florida. I am passionate about a lot of things including, good jazz, good art, good coffee (a necessity) and good friends. I have been painting ever since studying under South Florida artist Ann Tyler way back in my teens and have added sculpting to the list about five years ago. I am an avid reader (as well as writer), as anyone who has seen the piles of books around my place would know. They could be pretty much anything; fiction or non. The latest Tom Clancy could be sitting right along side of books on history, biographies, philosophy and religion, Jungian psychology or the latest collection of Dilbert funnies. You never know what you'll find! Since entering the workforce many moons ago, I have worked in radio, toured as a soundman with different bands, have been a crime scene investigator and have recently finished digging my escape route out of a cubicle where I worked for the economic development arm of the state. Two of the most important lessons that I have learned: 1) Life is too short to not be passionate about your work. So find out what drives you and DO THAT. 2) The good you do will always come back to you eventually. So, do something nice for someone today!
