The PAM 307 is my favorite watch - a true grail in every sense of the word for me!

The Dolphin Club beach in San Francisco is my favorite beach. Now, my family is from Kauai, Hawaii and the Dolphin Club beach is STILL my favorite.

Both the watch and this beach are very special to me and represent my personality very well. . . uh, big and cold? Lol. Or maybe its extreme and bareable once you get used to me. Or maybe it is just a cool photo. Here are a few more. . .

I don't know the difference between an Avatar and a signature.



I got it figured now though. . .

I had described the photo in my signature. My Avatar is a photo I took at a triathlon in Santa Cruz. I just thought it was a nice pic.

my first book (English for pharmacists) utilized this:



never cared for it, but thank Zeus it didn't affect sales.

Anyway after the success of the first pic, my publisher asked if I could write a book for nurses in Japan and I did, but my coauthor hated the above pic, so it was changed to this:



And FYI, here is what I more or less look like in real life:



I really prefer the avatar pic I use - though I never even met the person who drew it for me.

Have a great day!

I think I did a Google or Yahoo image search with something like "shady dude" or guy or man and found this.

The people how have spent time with me in person will tell you that although I may be a shady guy - I am not Asian and I do not have a giant hat such as the one in the pic.

An inlay on one of Jerry Garcia's guitars designed by luthier Doug Irwin. Her wrist is a little bony for a PAM.

Part of a coverup I had done last year. I did it to honor the 135 steps at Ekso (fka Berkley Bionics).

Here's the post about the ink.
