Being a mortgage originator can theoretically be a very fulfilling and rewarding career. It is an endeavor that is dedicated to helping people acheive their hopes and dreams.
After graduating with a major in English, I actually persued a path as a photographer in NYC. My studio was on W. 13th St.,...the "Meatpacking District". Back when it was actually the meatpacking district, and well before the subsequent gentrification. And while I was able to produce work for VH1's "Hip Hop Nation" and "America's Most Smartest Model", the Village Voice, many ads and editorials for domestic and foreign magazines, books and exhibitions, it was rubbing shouders with some of NY's most auspicious talents in my neighborhood that was most satisfying. (Stephen Klein, Dah Len, Pablo Inirio, Christian Witkin, etc.) Eventually, film fell by the wayside, and digital took over. It was time for my exit.
Then a full fledged career as a Hardware Design Engineer, and being very privledge to work for companies at the forefront of many day to day things people cannot remember ever doing without. HDTV, (Lucent Technologies), defense technology, (Northrop, L3, Orbital Sciences, etc.),...and even farming technologies. (tractor seed planting per GPS....Dickey-John)
And then came the pandemic, and a time to drag me off my life aboard a 35 ft. Irwin sloop in Hollywood, Fl. But tutoring my then "failing" children appeared to be the most important thing I would accomplish in my life. But it taught me,...doing nothing has no upside. And I wasn't built that way.
Athough my careers have been varied, I've enjoyed them all, and feel privileged as I now attempt to help as many Georgians as I can.
