|Location||Somewhere in the Mojave Desert, A Vast Expanse, United States|
|Introduction||I like to think ahead and develop myself, my tools and my provisions so that I can succeed, whatever may come.|
I've learned to learn fast, particularly understanding how things work, seeing beneath the surface, and working out how to apply that understanding.
I bring a "systems" perspective to everything I do.
Currently, I'm pursuing education and certification in emergency management. Behind me are studies in: psychology, business management, computer systems, security and survival, electronics/radio technology, and music.
I can hardly resist exploring new topics and seeing how the new knowledge compares with and modifies my existing understanding of things.
Yup. I'm an Explorer: nature's wonders and human endeavor. No wonder I keep busy!
