I sit in the middle of the country in Nebraska, but have a world wide view on life. Grew up in Connecticut, went to school in Oklahoma, and moved north because I just couldn’t take two weeks of 100F weather during the summer.
Oklahoma State University did provide me with a Bachelors Degree in Animal Science/Business and that has served me well. During the past twenty years I have been involved in some way in the pet or animal health industry. Have worked at a veterinary teaching hospital (Okla State), veterinary clinic, nutritional research laboratory, pharmaceutical company, pet store (Fish Bowl), farmers co-op (Farmland), pet food manufacturer (Oxbow Animal Health), swine equipment distributor, and a pet product distributor. Whew! So I love all things pets, including the people that go with them.
My travels have taken me to just about every state in America and I’ve been fortunate to visit England, France, Germany, the Czech Republic and Canada.I love to travel, I love the beach! (could be a Quarter coming)
I’m passionate about many things but I’d have to start with the internet. That’s one of my “Quarters”. My journey online started in 1991, when there was very little to see. How many remember CompuServe, I was on there. The Rush Limbaugh forum in the early 1990′s was great, I’m not too much of a fan of his now, he’s a political wonk and I can only take so much politics. (Growth of the internet will most likely be a longer article.)
I am a social media junkie, my cyberlife is on Facebook, got on in 2006 shortly after the expansion from the college audience. My son added me so I had a friend, wasn’t he nice. So what does a person who is passionate about social media do for a living. Consult and work with companies, especially small start-ups, in social media. This blog started as a way to learn WordPress, but is an evolving work in progress. .
So besides being able to be on the computer 24/7 what else do I like. Photography and food. They do go hand in hand, although some think a strange combination. But if you become a reader of this piece of internet real estate you will soon understand why.
I have three kids, one who is a Marine, one about to become a Marine, and a teenage daughter. Love music, play the piano for church, have Jack Russel dog, who is somewhat spoiled and likes to lay under my feed while I’m at the computer, it’s how he gets his head scratched.
Enjoy my ramblings, hope you find something you like, if you do leave a comment, if you have a blog you think I might like on the above topics, leave that too.
Have a great and blessed day!
