Who Am I?
I was born and raised in New York (Brooklyn and Staten Island to be precise). I planned on being a physical therapist but my dad said it wouldn't make a lot of money. "You should be an accountant". So I did, became a CPA and worked in the big city for 15 years. I left New York to work at a major financial services firm. But that itch to write just keeps getting stronger. So here I am.
Why Should You Come Here?
Here we are going to discuss all sorts of shit. Am I an expert on any of this? I'll let you be the judge (I think to some degree expertise is in the eye of the beholder). But, I've been married, I have four kids (3 boys and 1 girl), one of my kids has autism (enough said), I've loved my job and I've hated my job, I've lived in mansions and now I live in an apartment, I've laughed, I've cried, succeeded and failed, and I've run away from two falling towers. I think that's a decent portfolio.
(at least for now)
I know your portfolio is probably very different. Yours might be way calmer and I bet some are much more intense. Whichever it is, it's your portfolio.
Like I said, we all have shit.
