To take the carpet woven from the warp (pursuit of spirit, music and education) with the weft (marketing, manufacture and trendmongering) of my previous work history and sell it at a fair price. To find an orginization capable of recognizing my talents and grow with them. Relocation to Seattle, Vancouver BC , Bangkok, Mumbai, India preferred.
Previous Work History
Nov.99 Big Swifty and Associates.Com -Took the opportunity afforded by a month's unemployment to create a WWW sight (please see address at page bottom)
96 - 99 Caregiver / Caretaker - Attended to the needs of Alzhiemer's and stroke patients. Volunteered for custodial duties at the Meher Spiritual Center.
92 - 96 Blue Newt Productions - From beach bum to promoter in four easy years. Incremental successes in diversifying the music produced on the "Red Neck Riviera" by focusing on Roots Music. Unintentionally monopolized and furthered the Reggae massive with PutaiParties 92-95 (Purple Gator, Afterdeck, Cowboys, Headroom).

84 - 87 Folk Lore - Subprem All World Primitives - This company served as a personal vehicle for international travel and collecting beautiful objects for four years. A good eye and natural bargaining talents were equal to the challenge presented by vendors in "Chor Bazaars" worldwide. Sales and marketing skills refined by gallery relationships in NY/Seattle. Also provided pieces for Smithsonian travelling exhibition: "Aditi: A Celebration of Folk Art in India."
82 - 84 I & I Wear - Seizing an opportunity in an underrealized marketplace, reigned as "Sunglass King" of the Grand Strand for two lucrative years.

Subjective Life Experience
Created an independent undergraduate major at Pomona College in Transpersonal Psychology/Anthropology. Continuing research is dedicated to Avatar Meher Baba, the One behind the Many, in hope that it might serve in part as the curriculum for the (as yet unrealized) Spiritual Academy proposed in the charter of the Meher Universal Spiritual Center. November of this year saw the birth of a web based linked outline of this material. I intend to generate content as time allows.
