Self-introduction: The best way to get to know me is to look through my blogs and comments, and get an objective view.
I say I am semi-retired because I have plans on returning to work once I am settle back in Canada or another country that I can legally work in. I love the outdoors; travel and communicating with positive people that want to share their thoughts, dreams and experiences to enrich each other’s lives. Favourite pastime is kayaking on a small river or quiet lake. The best day of my life was Nov 2, 2007, the day I kayaked down the Colorado River with a female tour guide and a young married couple. During the eight hours out in nature, we visited a steam cave, hot spring with four pools, each getting hotter closer to the source and had a picnic lunch as well as kayaking in 72 F or 23 C weather.
My first time in China was in Jan 2010, when I flew to Beijing for 2 weeks, returning Aug 2011 after which I have spent 15 out of the last 20 months in China. My goal is to be able to speak basic Chinese before I leave. I realize the only way to learn is to apply myself as I have lots of tools and encouragement.
In the 38 years that I worked in Canada's I formation Technology and Banking Industries I worked 11 years as a Project Manager, 22 years as a programmer analyst / developer (now called software engineers) and 5 years in various roles in data processing and stock management. I had three focuses do my best and work hard (50 to 60 hours a week) to earn my pay and keep my job, continuous improvement through study and training whenever available to increase my skills and earning power, and last but not least earn the respect and friendship of my peers through trust and sharing knowledge.
