  • Ex-investment analyst, not-so-great marketer, artist-in-the-making, bibliophile, animal lover, daydream believer. Sometime, while growing up, I bought someone else's dream, and in doing so lost mine. The result : a life of quiet desperation. So I quit my good job, adopted 4 dogs, and started dreaming again. Life is still imperfect, but it's now perfectly mine. I hope my stories will support you to live a life that is perfectly yours.
