L'autore: Through Antioch College, I worked as a Scrub Nurse at the Metropolitan General Hospital of Cleveland Ohio, where we treated more gunshot wounds than Harlem every Friday night. During my third year of college, my roommate got a bit paranoid and decided to flee the USA. What can I say? He was Physics major so I didn?t understand most of what he talked about. He did explain that he had bought all the materials and plans to build a sailboat but it would take too long so he was leaving by air for Norway in the morning and I could have it all for one dollar. I paid up instantly. So it was once again, I was touched by the hand of the Baby Jesus. I did the only sensible thing, and dropped out of college to start construction. I built a Brown 42 foot SeaRunner Trimaran in one year-Sailed her down to South America from San Francisco and then through the Panama Canal to the Caribbean. Upon returning to the USA I looked at my resume. It was not pretty. I took the only job that was available to someone with my talents?I worked as a Beaver Wrangler or Wild Animal Trainer for a Walt Disney affiliate. Later I worked as a contractor and builder of eclectic million dollar custom homes. We built the unbuildable?spiral houses, boat shaped houses, and houses made of rain barrels. We built a Japanese house for a Hollywood movie producer. I learned Hollywood was wonderful and horrible at the same time. After seven years, I fled Hollywood for the Northwest and ended up in Seattle. There, I entered into the computer business and went on to build computer Infrastructure for Amazon.com and Zillow.com. In my spare time I became a painter of scantily clad women. Boats, women and building things- That?s my story-
