I’m 37 now, when I was 20 I left college to pursue my dreams and have adventures. I spent a couple of years living my bohemian poet fantasy, writing surrealist poetry that apparently only I could understand. Then I spent several years in the Army as an infantryman, including a six month tour with the MFO mission in Egypt. After leaving the Army, I set out to pursue my dream of becoming an airplane pilot and earned a commercial pilot certificate and some other ratings. I then spent a few years finishing up college and after graduation rented a one room cabin out in the woods in rural Missouri for a year to read and reflect and live a version of the Walden dream. I was considering pursuing careers in history, international relations or journalism and eventually spent a year at Southern Illinois University in the journalism program and working at the school paper. But I was bitten by the entrepreneurial bug and came up with an idea of starting an audio publishing company specializing in aviation and military history and have spent the past couple of years saving money and developing the idea while working as a tour guide in DC. I’m right at the beginning now of starting the business. I’m in the process of moving to Pennsylvania and spent this past weekend setting up my small home studio and hope in a couple of weeks to start recording my first audio book.
He’ll post when he feels like it. Welcome aboard, Phil!
