My life has been episodic, so it's hard to know even where to start. I ran away from home six times during my youth to see the world. The first three trips were the usual rail pass & hostel tours of Europe that should be a rite of passage for every kid. I rode a motorcycle from Washington DC to Santiago, Chile on my fourth trip. I did Asia sans motorcycle on the fifth ("doing" a continent is traveller's lingo). I attempted to cross Australia by bicycle on my final trip before deciding the place was a big, bloody bore. There's enough here for a lengthy autobiography that I won't write today.
My work resume is so full of holes that you could put it on a player piano. A few highlights: professional motorcyclist, IRS agent, auto mechanic, assistant nurse, pimp (it was an accident!), landscape foreman, union organizer, novelist, and high school teacher. At the moment I'm in one of my self-imposed monastic cycles while I contemplate another change of careers.
I joined Ricochet to network with other conservatives. I consider myself a culture warrior for the good guys.
