+Kennon Tacony I think I know what it is and what happened to it. My only question, what's that red thing on its head?

Unfortunately, my leaving China came up too too soon which left me not enough time to plan & travel the silk road home through Asia's west door through Europe to USA.  Definitely didn't have enough training to complete the Gobi desert race running 250km in 7 days so I've committed and signed up do it in 2014.  Lookin for training / racing friends.

Story
Tagline
It's not what you look at that matters, It's what you see.
Introduction

Life is not a spectator sport.

___________________________________

I'm from a place where only the locals call it "the Lou" otherwise known as Saint Louis.  There's so many ways to love "the Lou" besides raising a family there.  After studying and graduating at a University in Ohio, lived and worked in several locations specializing in marketing & sales.  Furthered my education with achieving an International MBA while studying in Europe and Asia.  Recently finished an overseas China assignment in sourcing, quality control  & supply chain management.  Now, currently working on various projects and managing my own startup ecommerce business while studying technology, network admin related courses.  Looking to launch a billion dollar company in the near future.      

Besides a demanding professional workload, still continue to participate in many sports such as surfing & kitesurfing,  skydiving, running, triathlon and adventure races as well as playing on a Aussie football team.

Also have much interest in Live Music, Films, Tech & Tasty Food.
