My dream from childhood was to be a Renaissance man. As Heinlein described "Specialization is for insects". (Nothing wrong with insects though!) And though being a renaissance man doesn't come with a good retirement plan, it is what has long pulled at me! Radio, writing, international alpine skiing competition/testing/modeling, I.T. work, garlic farming, being a dad, running a business, music lover and player, utter science geek - playing with high energy particle physics a lot over the last years.
