Careers in Advertising on Madison Avenue and then into recruiting financial advisors. Now starting a small food business from my home and doing some consulting in the recruiting field. I have been an Apple "evangelist" since 1983, when I bought an early model, the Apple IIe. Being in a Microsoft environment at work, it remained strictly a "home" computer, but with the introduction of the Macintosh I upgraded AND convinced my smallish firm (64 employees) to go Apple. Today, semi-retired, I have a New Apple Mini, i PAD 3, and an old MacBook which is probably to be traded soon for a Macbook Air. I also own a significant number of Apple shares bought in the range of $212 - $331 (average $274) so am quite happy with the stock gains.
