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.
