About me

Gender Male
Industry Investment Banking
Occupation Financial Advisor
Location Durham, NC, United States
Introduction I'm a Lucky Dog. Beautiful and supportive wife, two wonderful sons. A frustrated writer (hence this blog endeavor), chemistry kept me from entering the UNC creative writing program. The full boat sank. But that was years ago. Just a recurring nighmare now, opening that report card./ Three great gigs in life. A decade plus with Pirelli US during the golden days of 80's Euro automotive high performance. Culminated by three years as National Marketing Director. VP of family-owned men's clothing emporium. Culminated by hundreds of wonderful relationships. Financial Advisor just celebrating five years helping clients invest with an institutional mindset and approach. Nothing here is a solicitation./ Vagabond, all work-related. Nashville, Dallas, Chicago, NYC, Silicon Valley. Great times in all those great cities, but now happily back home in Durham, North Carolina. Looking forward to retirement in Wrightsville Beach./ About this blog thing, I promise not to take myself too seriously. You shouldn't either. Yet, my hope is that the mini-adventures the dog in me sends your way will add to your appreciation of your Big Adventure.(see the post "It's a Lucky Dog life")
