Introduction My nickname is Detroit Jack, because I was born in Detroit. In JHS, my school asked, 'What are three goals for your life?'. I answered, 'Promote music, become a professor, and sail around the world.' They entered our answers into a computer, that spit out an occupation for each of us to pursue, and mine said, 'House Painter'. 'WTH?', was my response. I have pursued my three goals ever since, and dedicated my blogs, Detroit Jack, Future Now, and Bike & Sail Classical to these goals!
