My hobby is learning the skills of the Paleolithic era; making fire by friction, tanning deer hides using just the brains, pit fire pottery, wild edibles, and primitive trapping and snaring.
I have two teenage kids (13 and 15) a boy and a girl.
Most of my lineage is filled with artists, inventors, and musicians going back for as many generations as we know of. I guess I am a black sheep as my first career was as an electrical engineer designing cellular telephone networks. I spent seven years living the ex-pat life based in Hong Kong and traveling throughout SE Asia mostly working on telephone networks.
Now I avoid using cellphones.
I’ve always been interested in dreams and collective consciousness. Just for fun, I earned a Masters degree in Transpersonal Theory studying Jungian psychology.
For many decades I was fascinated by money and how it worked. Reading, learning, and investing, I eventually left engineering to become a very successful professional money manager structuring high yield real estate investment partnerships.
Much of my life has involved a lot of international travel and I’ve had this bizarre fascination with visitng the Federal Reserve or National Bank equivelent in each country I visited. It was a strange, intuitive compulsion which never amounted to anything but seeing the lobbies of quasi-governmental buildings around the world. Then I read “The Creature FromJekyl Island” and all of a sudden, I saw what the whole game was about and decided to quit spending my life energy in pursuit of using money to make money.
