No rags-to-riches yarn here… no bs stories or attempts at image-making either. No beautiful offspring with which I can proudly pose. Nevertheless, I do sometimes feel like the luckiest man on Earth, so to speak.
Since a youngster, I’ve been fortunate to live in one of the most beautiful and fun places in our country to live, work, and play. I’m fortunate to have remained in good health despite my many attempts at self-destruction...ahem.
I was fortunate enough to circumnavigate the globe by sea, and spent a small fortune pursuing my bliss in motorsports naturally desirous of just about any ‘velocipede’ that I could get my mitts on. Rich in mixed experiences holding the best of memories along with my waterman roots in wave and ocean environs.
I’ve also been blessed with a most loving family, the sweetest gal on Earth, and some of the best friends and ‘nephews’ with whom anyone could ever enjoy "being there".
Both my natural parents were college professors by desire, mutual focus, and professions. My mom a fine artist (drawing, painting, printmaking) and art historian. My father a botanist (plant anatomy) and “creative evolutionist”...
I think it’s fair to say that I possess a reasonable genetic foundation for managing my "animus" throughout this wonderful journey within the Internet’s world of Cannabis politics, economics, science, and technology.
My wish is that you find my sincere affection and deep appreciation for the natural sciences and the visual arts reflected on these pages. I figure I’m getting better at it as I go.
