I posted this on my Facebook profile – thought it would be neat to post here:
Let’s see… I’m 44, and have been married to my wife Maryellen since 1999. No kids, which has its benefits (I don’t hate kids or anything, but personally, I like being childfree.)
We got married in Vegas a month after meeting (that was astonishingly fun), and have a nice little house in Kingston NY that we share with our dog and cat. I gotta tell ya, life is pretty good around here these days.
Professionally, I’ve been a self-employed writer for about a decade. I generally write business and sales copy for companies, but I’m also an author (have written two books), a business/marketing consultant, an internet sales expert, etc etc. I know there’s another place for work stuff here, but really, my work is an essential part of the “about me” thing (at least for me it is – I really like working and what I do). See my websites for more info if you are so inclined.
In the past, I’ve held lots of interesting and varied jobs, from marketing to computer stuff to sales to retail management, and a few others that aren’t worth mentioning. I got fired from many of them – I don’t take micromanagement-type BS from idiots well at all, and generally prefer to be left alone and do things my way. But I learned a lot in my eclectic career – I can build, fix, market, sell, program, write, rewire, give a killer presentation to 100 people, and play a decent game of chess as well.
If you knew me in the past, I’m prettymuch the same guy now – maybe a tad heavier, and a little quieter (essentially, I’d rather hang on my deck than go to the bar – the drinks and music are better here, and I have a “no assholes” policy that is strictly enforced 🙂
Anyway, thanks for stopping by and reading this far. Hope things are good for you as well. Life is meant to be enjoyed – too many people lose sight of that.
