And do we really need to know?

I was born in olden-times, the year the Beatles put out Revolver, when their stuff was still a little bit bubble-gummy (1966), and LBJ was president.  I was born in Georgetown University Hospital in Washington, D.C., which means to this day I think my voting rights are still limited.  I'm not even sure if I am allowed to run for President.  

I grew up in Rockville, MD and attended the VERY prestigious Rockville High School (go Rams!).  Through a clerical error, I was accepted into Duke University where I squandered my engineering education acting like a campus Falstaff/clown.  Despite myself, I was then able to attend the University of Chicago Graduate School of Business where I started to take myself seriously and actually got good grades.  From there, I went on to work at a bunch of places like the Boston Consulting Group, PepsiCo and then Weight Watchers.  

When I joined Weight Watchers as an employee, helping to start up their internet business, I was also an excellent candidate to lose weight.  It took me nine years (slow learner here), but I finally reached my goal weight in 2009 and became a Lifetime member.  I'm still at goal weight today, a fact of which I am immensely proud.  Nearly 14 years from when I first joined Weight Watchers, I hung up my spurs at the end of August 2013.  I don't know what I am going to do next, and I kind of like that fact.
