Hey guys, I tried posting
this about a year ago with no interest but I figured I'd try one more time.
I understand in terms of technical expertise, I bring little to the table so I can't say the lack of interest was surprising. However if anyone does have an extra spot and is willing to allow me to tag along and learn, I'm all for hearing about your plans.
I am a fast learner with limited experience (crewing on races in high school
, college from time to time), and what I DO have available is time and desire to learn.
So, base line about me:
-28 y/o male with a positive attitude and passion for new adventure
-Currently amidst a point of transition in my life trying to figure out what I aim to do next, and I figure the open water
and some exciting new places can help.
-I love to travel
-Worked in DC directing a cosmetic surgery practice for two years before realizing the industry was not of my taste, so I quit and moved to South Africa
for just under a year where I worked anti-poaching on a white rhino & elephant game
farm. After this I moved down to Siesta Key, FL (Sarasota), and organized a small team of programmers to build out contract
applications. It went well for a while but I began losing coders to corp jobs offering better benefits than I could, so I shut that down and now I'm selling websites for a company out of DC. It leaves a lot of time on my hands.
Aside from that job, I am completely unattached. I live in a house my parents own and keep a handy eye on it and cover utilities in exchange for their generosity.
Basically the only obligations I still have these days are friends' weddings, which is hilariously ironic because I'm over here putting off upgrading my phone
for the last eight months because I'm afraid to make that two year commitment to AT&T. Chalk it up to wanderlust, I guess. I even just recently came back from a trip to DC where I sold off about 90% of everything I own (furniture and clothing
and boring stuff like that). My lack of 'stuff' has been a nice change of pace.
One thing I do need to consider is that my current
financial situation is something I must keep in mind. Though should the right adventure come along I have no problem selling stuff (car, fancy electronics) and taking off.
Anyway, I hope I haven't rambled on too long. If anyone thinks I might be a good fit for your crew or has any clever ideas, please don't hesitate to get in touch!
Thanks for reading,
