The eclectic list below reflects my lifelong avoidance of work. Whenever I got to the point of feeling I was going to work, instead of going to play, I’d look for “something else.”
Head shot is me in North Carolina in 2010, airplane is B58 from web, merged in Photoshop.
Since this is not a resume I have omitted dates, company names, etc. The list was originally written as bullet points — someday I’ll change it to more conversational language.
