Love ItLove It

Lets introduce ourselves!

One of the things that I am always curious about is the “who” of the online conversation. Based on my post of yesterday talking about the reality of the not yet here information age, I would share a little of who I am, to help people get started. It isn’t a challenge, just an opportunity to create a greater connection.

First off, I work in the IT world and have for most of the last 30 years. I have had various leadership positions over the years, based on that some of my suggestions come across as orders. I promise they are not meant as orders, always suggestions.  I run a team of people; sometimes, I forget that I need to throttle back a little.

I live in the US. (in the comments, where do you live) I have lived in what traditionally called the middle of the US (Born near Chicago, lived in India and Ohio). I have been to all 50 US states so far and more than 60 countries of the world. I’ve logged over  1.5 million miles flown and spent more than 1000 nights in various hotels all around the world.

I am a parent. I am also a husband. Now more than eight years ago, we packed up the family and moved to Maryland (on the Eastern Coast of the US).

Thanks for reading! Now you know a little more about me. During the workweek, I get up at 3:30 in the morning so that I can get a jump on the day’s activities!

I am a long time blogger and technology poster.I focus on what is possible, but I also try to see what is coming. In recent years I have been focused on sharing the memories of my family, as part of my Family History Project.

  1. Hi! I am Sharon Lopez from the Philippines. I have been in two countries, Hongkong and Singapore. But I would love to visit other countries like Japan and the US. I am a government employee and handling programs related to children and women. I love exploring new things. That is the reason why I discovered that I can actually earn online. I learned different skills online through research and self-study. Currently, I spend my free time writing for Bitlanders, Forum Coin and Virily. I write mostly about artificial intelligence.

  3. I was born and raised in NYC. Left the US with my mom in 1994 and spent the next 20+ years in Riga, Latvia. My husband died, I sold the house and I am back in the US now in the state of Florida. I have been to some other states too but that was a while back and I love the Canadian city of Toronto.

  4. Born in Taibei, raised in LA. Freelance illustrator who plays go in his spare time. Even in a slow year I still read more books than some folks will read in their whole life. I have always considered myself to be a man of science…

  5. I live in a small country Slovenia. I visited some countries near me. I worked at a large rubber company as a client administrator (import, export). I am now 3 years retired. I have a son, I’m a grandmother … I am a widow for 20 years. I’ve lived with my partner for a couple of years. My hobbies are: gardening, walking, visiting and exploring new places. I enjoy nature and by the water the most.

  6. Well, I have lived in New Zealand most of my life. I did an overseas trip to Australia about twice and hope to go again. I have also been to a round trip of Singapore, Athens, Israel, England, Belgium and Germany and returned through Los Angeles and only saw Disneyland.
    I would love to go to many places in the world if it is possible.

    As you know I am a creative person and try to do many different things, people are interesting to me and love learning about different people and ideas.

    Life is a journey, and so we go on..Through trials and joys.. all sorts of different places… Hope to continue learning..

  7. I have lived in Ohio all of my life. I have been to about 20 states. Outside of the country – Canada, Mexico and Bermuda. I have worked in Advertising, Customer Service Supervisor, owned my own business; and my last position was Accounting Office Manager. I enjoy writing, reading, cooking, making friends on the internet, photography, video games and more.

    I can’t believe how many countries and states you have visited! You must have never unpacked!

  8. Hello, my name is Steve. I live in NYC. Have been here all my life. Best city in the country if you ask me. LOL. I am retired, well, unable to work these days. Unfortunate. But I try and keep busy from day to day when my health permits me to. I have been here on this site for like 3 years. I know, I hardly ever written much here. Well, I do belong to a site called MyLot. I love it there. That is my online home mostly. But I have been on and off line since my heart attack back in October of 2018. Bummer. I know. But I am doing better these days. I still have my bad days here and there. So some things are limited for me. Not happy about that. This sounds like a downer reply. Sorry for that. I have just gotten into the hobby of Fountain pens and I am also looking to eliminate my vinyl record collection and stick with digital. That’s about it for now.

  9. My names are Benny Njuguna. I am from Kenya. I have only traveled to one country, Tanzania (my neighbor). I started with low-paying job, moved on working as a typist. I dived into a writing course about 11 years ago. I have been writing online since 2008 for various online article sharing sites. I don’t like working for fixed hours which made me opt to write for article revenue sharing sites. I usually don’t like rigid in one place from Monday to Friday.
    Even though I state on my CV, I like travelling and adventures, the fact is I don’t like travelling though I don’t know why I usually like saying that.
    I became a full-time teacher in 2012. Currently, I’m teaching in Tanzania in a middle-level teacher training college.
    I hope to visit less than five countries before I hit old age.
    I will be resigning from teaching this year. I want to concentrate in writing, graphic design and IT.
    Nice to know you were a teacher.

  10. I am a very simple, private person, I enjoy writing poetry and my thoughts, I love gardening, animals, travelling and trekking ( though I can’t do much now). I love to cook and my boys love to eat. 😀

  11. Just yesterday one of my colleagues talked to me after so many years informing me that there will be a meet of all ex colleagues in Feb I declined the invitation but prepared a video of my activities after I resigned to be presented at the meet.

    I have travelled a lot both home and abroad. Had a colourful career experience, did business – landscaped garden designing and now I am a lady of leisure doing what I enjoy doing.

    .

  12. I have all about me online and I have lived in different countries. I have almost the same corporate experience as yours. Great to know more about you especially the number of countries you have visited. By the way I have also traveled in all states of India and stayed away from home. I am a mechanical engineer & marketing professional.
