"Let others lead small lives, but not you. Let others argue over small things, but not you. Let others cry over small hurts, but not you. Let others leave their future in someone else's hands, but not you." -- Jim Rohn

Who am I? That is a question that I have struggled with for most of my life.
I was born and raised in rural Upstate New York. I always knew that I was a bit different from all of my friends but I never quite knew why. Instead, I became really adept at becoming a chameleon. I made friends and fit right in with all of the various cliques in high school.
I was smart, so many of my friends were too. I was easy going, but rebellious at the same time. Maybe it was partly because I lived in such a small town, but I had friends all across the spectrum.
I spent much of my childhood enjoying motor sports. I was fortunate to have access to machines for every season; Snowmobiles, dirt bikes, ATVs, and Wet Bikes (predecessor of Jet-Ski).
My teen years were really just one big party. Alcohol, drugs and sex were all pretty casual. I guess looking back that was just another way of fitting in.
I have been in the electronic security field since I was 18 years old. At the time I was attending college full time but really didn’t have any strong aspirations. My job was more interesting and paid me better than most of my friends. So at the time it felt like all that I needed.
I got married at the age of 19. Not because of love, but because it seemed like a logical progression of my life. It became obvious very quickly that It, my marriage, was never going to make me happy.
I moved to Philadelphia at 23. It was a drastic move, but much needed at the time. My first time being in a big city. I started to begin to unravel the mystery of who I am as I realized that I can love women more than I ever loved men.
I now live in the Lehigh Valley / Pocono Mountain area of Pennsylvania with my partner of 14 years and our dog and cats.
Over the years, some of my extra-curricular activities have been a part time college student (for many years), bartender, volunteer firefighter, artist, real estate investor and real estate agent.
Many people that know and love me think I am crazy. You see, I just walked away from a good job, with job security and benefits. I have worked for Lafayette College for the past ten years. It paid the bills, but felt incredibly stifling to my creativity and potential. Only time will tell if I have made the right choice, but I really don’t feel like there is any turning back for me.
Today, I am a network marketer that specializes in SEO, branding, and inspiring freedom. I really enjoy helping others discover new things. I have met so many wonderful people. Regardless of what the future holds, I know my life will never be the same!
My favorite part of the day to day operations of this business is finding new and better ways to drive traffic to my various websites.
I look forward to one day being able to experience the thrill and excitement of motor sports again. I look forward to being able to spend more quality time with the people that I love. I look forward to being able to take long lunches. I look forward to always having a couple of bucks in my pocket when the girl scouts come calling!
My Location: East Bangor, Pennsylvania
