Somebody asked me about my education and background at another forum and hasn't given me the satisfaction of a reply yet - so I thought I would take the opportunity to talk about myself here.
I’ve lived a lot of places before where I’m at now, several of them more than once. Kansas, Montana, Minneapolis, Chicago, LA, Kansas (again), Rhode Island, Salt Lake, Rhode Island (again), Minneapolis (again), then back to Salt Lake - (again).
I studied theater design at the Goodman School of Drama / DePaul University in Chicago and industrial design at the Rhode Island School of Design on nearly full scholarships. I’ve considered an advanced degree, but it holds little value for my line of work and I remain indecisive about what I would want to study and if “personal development” is a worthy reason to pursue another degree.
I have a great little family.
I’m active in my religion.
I’m the principal of a design firm that creates branded environments.
I facilitate men’s work, think Robert Bly. My mission is to reach my full potential by helping other people to recognize theirs.
I have a chronic genetic degenerative disease called Ankylosing Spondylitis where my immune system eats my cartilage so my bones fuse together and I loose range of movement. I’ve had symptoms since I was 17 but wasn’t dx’d until I was 27, it hurts a lot, but I’ve got it under control.
I ski, hike, camp and climb.
I read books.
I’d like to to make custom Star Wars stuff rugged enough to be played with.
I’d give my left nut to be on Survivor.
I’m 32 years old.
