I was a Real Estate Developer for many years ( I designed and built over 2 million sq. feet of commercial and residential space. Then I added systems integration to the mix in the early 90's, then became an ISP for low income, and ultimately I created,proved and launched the reloadable prepaid charge cards. You probably see them hanging in all the super markets, or at the 7-11. It was 1996, and I wanted to create a card product that anyone could add money to, and pay as you go, without being rejected for lack of credit.
I also created the Themed design Store for Harley-Davidson, and the Mini-Market for Mobile Oil company.
It would be so nice to find a business woman who is happy in who she is, and has done things she can be proud of.
I am an Industrial Designer who was struck with stage 4 cancers of the larynx, tonsil, and lymph nodes in 2003. It was very difficult to go through that alone.
You can sure learn a lot about friends and family when going through such a huge traumatic incident, their are people who try to see you often but wearing a smug face, and then their are the ones that never even come to see you, and then their are the few who see you in whatever time they can be there, and you know they are doing it out of love.
I lost everything, financially and figuratively, and yet I still keep knocking on the doors to rebuild my life. I am in remission and find that watching food shows is very therapeutic for me. then I experiment with tastes, now I have a problem because the radiation treatment poisoned my taste, and wiped out my thyroid. But I absolutely make the best dishes you will ever tatse, and will either have a restaurant, or food truck very soon.
I have been a part of all that is high tech in the financial services world, but then again my goal is to create and have franchisable restaurants. Having a place where I can keep my artistic juices flowing, in an area that is fun, and entertaining would meen getting up everyday with a smile.
Come take the journey with me, we'll make wonderful craft beverages, and great food together, forever.
There was a time when I was creating Internet applications that were so new and so disruptive that I quickly learned that if you are too far ahead of the curve, it can be as bad as being too far behind it. In other words you have to create, for the Internet a timed process, so that people will not struggle to understand what you have done, and then let them know it is going to make their life bette. I have done this again with an application that I want to be my legacy; the application will save lives, and provide services that we can do in the Cloud. This little app I am building is so elegant, yet so simple everyone will use the free service, and pay for the simple upgrades to get more from it.
If you are a software aficionado, a code writing genius, an iOS & Android wunderkind who wants to change the world and retire with a great guy, and a wonderful Restaurant in Napa. Send me a note; come on who has time for bashfulness.
I love the ocean, rivers, mountains, and enjoy a cup of coffee now and then. So maybe meeting somewhere that we can enjow the outdoors, strolling with a cup of Java talking about anything at all.
Or going to a museum is always a favorite of mine too.
I am not very knowlege able about the Bay area so you could give me some tips?
