I love life and try to make the most of everything and improve myself along the way. I enjoy meeting people from all walks of life that have differing experiences. I’m interested in Space/Time, economic cycles, share trading, some sports, health and hanging with friends and family. I always have grand ideas that I probably should follow through on some.
