7 Things About Myself
I’m 58 years young. That said, I still consider myself a “work in progress” with lessons learned and experiences (both good and bad) that have helped me to grow into the person I am today. I continue to grow and learn; looking forward to the next 58 years so I can find out who I’ll be then. Yes, that’s right…I plan to live forever!!
I am hopelessly in love with my wife. She is my companion, my partner, my best friend and my foundation. I have a beautiful daughter who is the light of my life. I cannot imagine living without them.
I have a passion for storytelling. Ask anyone I know..say a word, just one word and I’ll come up with a story for it. That being said, my preferred method for storytelling is the interaction of words and pictures. This is probably because my father bought me comic books when I was young. I learned to read from comics. Thanks Dad!!!
Though I love to read classic literature, I am addicted to the old pulp magazine heroes. Doc Savage, The Shadow and The Spider are my favorites and I read their adventures as often as I can. They’ve been reprinted by several publishers over the years. I’ve collected nearly all of them.
Believe it or not, I love my day job. Many would find it boring…talking to people on the phone all day. I love talking to people even if it’s just to take an order or help them solve a problem.
I love to walk. It doesn’t matter where I walk but I prefer forested areas or nature reserves. I’ll walk year round if I can but living in Chicago makes winter walking difficult.
I don’t watch a lot of television. Most of what I see bores me to death…but I do like Archer and The Walking Dead. Those two shows I’ll watch.
