Published, award-winning author and retired management consultant whose appeal has recently become more selective. Much more selective. I currently reside in Melbourne, FL in a three-hurricane tested house with two herding canines.
Other than walking dogs and reading, I also do a lot of swimming; competing in USMS events. Lately it has been mostly open water ocean races in Florida.
As someone with a sordid (less said the better) past in product marketing, I know the full value of giving yourself special awards periodically. Lucky for me, anyone can be award-winning with the right service subscription. Those standards are NOT all that high.
