As part of the betternetworker.com community I hope to share information and exchange ideas with all of you, so that we can all, and individually reach what it is that we aim to achieve? As far as my rap sheet, I'm a single father and extremely fortunate to have five treasured daughters in my life. I was born on the Island of Sulawesi, Indonesia, raised in Amsterdam Holland and my later years in Gary Indiana in the U.S. Paid my way thru college by shoveling coal into the hot furnaces of the Gary Steel Mills and playing sports. Even though not a U.S. citizen got drafted during the Vietnam War era, but was fortunate to spend my military duty stateside at Ft. Riley Kansas, unlike my war casualty Army brothers, who are my heroes and who I miss and respect deeply!
I now split my time between my places in Bali Indonesia and Claremont California. As an entrepreneur and businessman I have scaled the joys of the highest mountains and experienced the despair and lowest depths of the deepest sink holes. I have experienced both sides of the social fence. Mingled with both the rich and powerful and the homeless. As a consequence I have become more acute and compassionate.
My adventurous risk taking free spirit on life's journey has allowed my to build several companies, some that have been successful, and some that have failed miserably. I have dabbled in major movie production and lost my shirt! In between I have had the privilege to travel the globe, and expand my learning curve and what is really important in life, by living with some of the world's rich indigenous primitive cultures including the Dani tribe in Papua, Indonesia.
I believe betternetworker.com is a good watering hole to build genuine relationships based on trust and respect, where as well we can help one another as we together tackle our individual projects.
