I’m an engineer, family man, cyclist, and a hobby junkie that has passion for anything quality. Quality passionate people, quality product, quality ideas, quality conversations, etc… makes my day.
Updated 3/22/2012, the rebirth of my blog.
I finally realized, with help from a fellow blogger, that I have one of the worst intro pages on any blogsite. It’s sad and the truth kind of hurts a little, but I figure it’s no different than what I do day in and day out, I solve problems.
So let me tell you little something about myself, I am a workaholic on steroid. I run on same routine and process every day, I thrive on consistency and repeatability. My work life revolves around Powerpoint, Excel, & MS Project. Companies pay me very well for my consulting services. I basically tell them what they need to do to reduce waste, improve production, and increase their annual gross. I run my private life almost the same way. My New Year resolution always consists of shooting for at least 10% increase in annual revenue. I never let my friends, family, and loved ones down. If my buddy is struggling and just lost his job, I am the friend that lines up all the interviews, make cold calls, send out resumes, and prep him. If that doesn’t work I will work with him on weekends providing bicycle taxi service for tourists around DC, just so he can put food on the table. If my cousin needed a place to stay for a bit, I would gladly give up my master bedroom so he can feel welcome.
My work ethic is pretty intense; I can’t stand having any wasted time. If I’m waiting in a line or if I’m sitting in traffic, I’m always on the cell phone or a laptop. I can’t remember last time I actually listened to music on the radio…lol. In my perfect world, there is no such thing as down time, because it will all be taken up by something productive that yields some kind of tangible, or measurable, achievement. I can drive my wife crazy sometimes, but I always know she is right, and that’s when I know I need to turn some stuff off.
When I’m in my work mode it’s all business, and I can be as viscous as that jackass or a bully you abhor from your past. Doctors, lawyers, PhD’s, supervisors, etc… don’t mean anything to me. There are idiots at every level of profession and just because you have a fancy title only makes you a target. I’ve known janitors and technicians who were much smarter than lot of these so called genius PhD’s I work with. If I have a job to do, it’s either you are helping me or you are in my way. I feel very blessed that a guy like me is fortunate enough to have job security and not have to worry about money. I piss off lot of people, burned many bridges, but at the same time I earn respect from many more. I learned in business world, it’s the result that keeps you in the game.
On the other hand, I can also be a very soft spoken, gentle, & loving family guy. I love my family to death and I respect my wife beyond any cosmic force in this universe, both discovered and yet to be discovered. Only reason I work this hard is so I can set a good example for my two boys, and I truly want to make my wife feel like a queen…oh, and I still need to put her in a castle.lol I don’t want my boys turning out lazy, and I want them growing up to love their wife the same way I love their mommy.
If somebody asks me to describe myself with one word, my response is:
“One word cannot possibly describe me; it’s got to be at least three words…Fast and Furious!”
