I'm currently doing some research on a Portuguese language biography I intend to start writing next year.
I've lived & studied in various countries & have spent at least 3 months in pretty much every area of the world. I speak several languages fluently & have a Masters in Political Science. I've done consulting work for the DOD as well as a couple of large foreign companies. I worked briefly as a broker for Merrill Lynch back in the 90's, but hated the "selling" & left. So, I started & for 17 years ran a small porn production company. Yes, it was a lot of crazy fun, no I didn't catch anything.
All of the above means that there is very little that I haven't seen, very little that surprises me & virtually nothing that can shock me. It also means that I've got all kinds of stories I could share if "decorum" wasn't an issue. But alas................
From a p2p investor standpoint, it makes me allergic to BS, & generally skeptical of people. as I've met more "borrower types" than (I'm guessing)..............most of you guys combined. Not to mention that I've also been in their shoes as well!
