Introduction Hi! Welcome to my space on the web. I consider myself a down-to-earth, happy-go-lucky guy, who is just making it up as I travel through life, adding a virtual laugh track here and there to amuse myself and others. I have a friendly personality, which is expressive, warm, upbeat, fun and positive. I love meeting new people. I thrive on communication, organization, diversity, creativity and laughter.
