About Me:
I work in sales. I have a Bachelor's degree in Economics from the University of Kentucky and am working on my Master's in Business from Youngstown State University. I am partial to existential philosophy and free-market economics but am at heart a thinker who enjoys all intellectual discussion. I am an avid coffee-drinker/lover and wish I were as much of an aficianado as I profess to be. I am a Christian and attempt to express my faith through personal integrity and passion for people. I love my wife like a romantic poet on steroids and would throw away all other interests for one more moment with her.
About My Company:
I worked two years for a company that began in this way: In 1970, at the Pike Place Fish Market in Seattle, Washington...Oh, I'm sorry. You've already heard this story?
