I have a progressive soul and want to make a positive contribution to this world. I believe in the power of of love. My work background has been in web development and music. I enjoy writing,jogging,playing guitar and spending time with my family. Right now I'm working on multiple projects and I hope to network with some talented folks who can help me focus my energies so that I continue to grow in all aspects of my life. Likewise, I can pass along insights I've realized during my life. I do feel as if I've come full circle in that I'm more interested in writing and performing music. I also like to visit nursing homes and visit with the folks there. I'll add more later.
Way back as far as I remember, I loved to listen to good music. I also loved to listen to people tell stories and my grandmother used to make up incredible stories. I probably got my love for reading and creating stories from her. Early on, I learned to play piano, then drums, and finally settled on guitar. I played basketball and baseball and I'm getting ready to start playing in a basketball league.
My B.A. is in Psychology from the University of South Carolina.
My M.S. is in Information Systems Engineering from Regis University.
The last 15 or so years I've worked in different IT jobs. I lost my job in 2008. Then,my mom's identical twin sister was diagnosed with Alzheimer's and so most of the last year has been spent helping with her care. She passed last Sunday. I realized that I probably would have been fired anyway had I still had a job. I've found office politics difficult to deal with and so I've decided to develop my talents while I still look for conventional jobs. I really think that maybe I'm too independent or something to be able to work for other people. I work well WITH others, I just don't do well at kissing up to the boss and I don't think that comes across too well in a corporate environment. In my heart I'm an artist with a strong social conscience. I don't wanna boss anyone around and I don't wanna be bossed around. I like to listen to Vickie Winans, "Long As I Got King Jesus" because I can relate "I've been lied on, cheated, talked about, mistreated..."
