Mr. Winter

Salve civis. Thank you for stopping by. I am Robert, and this is my about me page. I believe that I am a complicated person and my life has been very interesting thus far. It is hard to sum all of myself up short and sweet like, but I will try.
I was born in New York and took way too long to make my way across the country to California. I left my family and 18 years of memories in North Carolina to head out west with my wife and our cats to find a place we felt more at home.
Since moving here I have worked temp jobs and have had a chance to do a lot of different things while meeting a lot of different people. I have also had the chance to work on our essential oil business enough that is starting to pay better than the temp companies I've worked for.

If you are a details person you can find a lot of our story on our site as we wrote about most of it as we went through it. I thought I would use this space though to tell you a few things about me that might not shine trough in my writing:
  • I have a grown son that I don’t talk to much because he is stubborn. I might write a post about that one day.
  • I have a bit of an obsession with Roman history. I like all history but I know more about Roman history than most others. When I hear Patrick Stewart, I think Lucius Aelius Sejanus not Captain Picard.
  • Speaking of Picard, I love Star Trek. My favorite series is Deep Space Nine. Watching people who have grown beyond religion and war while confronted with both has had me hooked since early on.
  • I have dyslexia and I do not spell well; so of course I would aspire to be a writer. Until the computer became so easy to use, with programs to fix my grammar, I always kept a dictionary on hand and planned extra time for writing.
  • I would like to think that people who know me would describe me as kind and helpful. However, they are more likely to say I am sarcastic and blunt.
  • If I could choose a super power I would pick the power to heal anyone of anything with a touch. Of course I would really like to time travel, but I believe the needs of the many outweigh the needs of a few.
  • I will eat jellybeans until I am sick.
I am sure my wife is wondering why I have not said anything about her yet-but this is supposed to be things you might not have known. If you read our blog you know I am married to my best friend and I have a great marriage so I don’t need to talk about that here.

You will have the chance to learn more about me in our upcoming podcast series. Until then stay groovy my friends!
