My wife and I have been living full time in a motor coach since 1998; we travel around the USA chasing good weather and adventure. We also park the coach from time to time in order to jump on a jet for some foreign adventures. I am an independent investor.
I am an independent contractor in instructional design & development, organizational performance improvement. Presently a doctoral candidate in instructional systems, investigating performance support systems and mobile learning applications. I'm particularly interested in energy issues: efficiency, storage, security, sustainability, etcetera. In 2009 I completed construction of a LEED-certified residence incorporating SIPS envelope, geothermal HVAC, photovoltaic array, battery bank for backup power. I tend to be an early adopter but try not to be on the bleeding edge of innovation--I've found that being too early to the party can be as painful as being too late.
Old Geezer that listened to parents that lived through the Great Depression. Am a USAF veteran and proud grandpa of twelve grandkids. I am trying to learn enough to be a good investor and have met many great and tolerant (I ask a lot of questions) people here on SA.
I'm a facilities maintenance mechanic in the San Francisco bay area working for a drug company. I LOVE to play golf and hope break par someday. I ride a Harley touring bike whenever possible and collect classic convertibles. Hoping to retire early to play golf 5 days a week. Never been very good at investing!
