I am of many things and many experiences, so for the purposes of this profile, I am a writer. I have been writing my whole life in various forms: Education, training, very long-winded journaling and expressive thought in posts or essays.
Writing was not something that came easy way back in grade school. I really had to work on it, but then the flood gates opened up and I found myself fluent in thought, but still learning grammar and punctuation here and there!
In 2011, while in my 3rd year of acupuncture school, I was suddenly and unexpectedly willed to write what became my first book on self help. During the editing process, I wrote a second book on management. While writing my first book, I had a fantastic dream. I woke up, wrote down 5 pages of notes and quickly went back to sleep.
Later that morning, I re-read my notes and laughed hard. There was something fantastic and my mind went into overdrive, creatively, to formulate this wonderful fictional story that I am presently working on with great enthusiasm.
I knew I was onto something while writing my first book, and not seeing any real purpose in becoming yet another acupuncturist in Southern California, I promptly quit school to write full-time.
In 2012, right after my first book hit the market, I was asked to return to my career in technology to help a friend, and I continue working in the field to support this new and wonderful creative endeavor.
I am a healer and a very old soul. I am not New Age or woo-woo. I work, make money, live an incredibly modest and average happy life. I do not get into lifestyles, but I do participate quietly. For example, for health reasons, I switched to a vegan diet and it works.
On the more concrete side of reality, I work in software quality as a senior manager with a degree in computer science. I am a board certified massage therapist. And I am an author.
If you choose to follow me, I may or may not follow you back. I will look at your profile and your posting history to see if you harness a certain level of individual creativity that makes for interesting stream content.
Consequently, if your profile is vague, lacks or has too much personal information (I don't care where you are hanging out), you fancy yourself an annoying constant self-promoter or an avid re-poster, you will not be followed. Individual creativity is paramount in my participation on this social network, so don't take it personally if I do not follow you back, and if you do, seek help.
This profile is not about self promotion. You will not see references (except the links in my About page) to my written materials or any leading posts to point you in that direction. If you think I am posting along those lines, I assure you that it is coincidental.
This is just a place to post thought. I hope you like it and I enjoy personal thoughts and interaction, but not criticism. Critical comments will be deleted and repeat offenders will be blocked.
With that...do great things with people you want to be with. If I am one of them? Awesome.
