My life is about staying healthy, fit, and youthful no matter what others say, do, or feel. I am the type who is cooperative/ competitive/ friendly/ intuitive/ artistic/ creative/ and at times stubborn by my very nature. To maintain an even keel I normally revert back to enjoyable or adrenaline driven memories to get through stressful situations. Inside of 50 years on this planet I've experienced 30 years in the food and beverage industry. My career with Marriott and Ramada Hotels as a production chef honed my abilities to manage people and time. Working for others in a corporate setting fostered my personality with incredible survival skills with a hardened callous exterior. No different than any other profession; mastering a trade is the ultimate goal. Legendary artists like Neil Young, Maya Angelou, and "Bo" Jackson, all examples of free thinkers who've opened that universal landscape for the rest of us to soar.
