Small Business Owner in Lansdale, Pennsylvania
My path was chosen in the early 1980s when I made the most of a mediocre trade school and blazed a trail through every job there was from press to pre-press to electronic pre-press to sales. I ate it up, and eventually landed a union job in Philly. Coincidentally, the entire printing industry was going to computers and most of us had to jump ship.
Ahoy, to my hobby and source of great joy - computer programming. I quickly sandwiched the two interests into freelance web development in the 90s.
Today we have a studio with web professionals and we run one of the most recognizable brands in web site development in our region.
When I'm not working a dozen web deals at a time I might be planning a gig in a rock or blues band, which I get the chance to do quite often.
Also, my weekly radio show is on WNPV AM 1440 called Buxmont Live. I interview just about anyone with a story to tell.
If you can be a rock star, do so. Our time is short.
