Where to start, I was asked to add an about page to describe how I found myself here at this stage of my life. An easy enough question, I thought, but here’s the long and short of it. I’ve spent twenty five years in the telecommunications business doing everything from residential work, new construction,and storm damages. Thought the years I have had some good and bad experiences as we all have, but my last employer was the straw that broke the proverbial camels back. With a verbally abusive work environment I decided to call it quits and strike out on my own. Trying to build a brand and turn some of my hobbies into an income that could support my lifestyle. With all the research I’ve been doing, starting a blog was at the top of most everyone’s list, and so I did just that. With no experience with such things I find myself learning more about myself than e-commerce. So I invite everyone to follow me on my journey if you like. I have always found peace in the outdoors so I thought why not try stock photography, so when I’m on the trail I snap a few pictures of things I find interesting. I have also been building leaded “stained” glass windows since I was a child. So I have started trying to sell some pieces on eBay. And I also love the “Upcycling” idea, although nothing new to me, growing up on the Cumberland Plateau in Tennessee at a time when everyone was poor and you reused everything, most times not for its intended purpose, seems to be all the rage. In short I’m looking at many things in my life that are not dictated by a little man in a suit who has never had his hands dirty. I’m sure I will stumble along the way, but in the process I will become a better friend, father, and human being. Not all things are material, to bad it took me half my life to understand that, but I intend to rectify that.
