I may be entering into a business arrangement in the near future with this man. I am trying to type him so that I better understand both of our strengths and weaknesses and what each person brings to the table. I have a few pictures and a few articles about him and a news clip that he appears in briefly.
From his school's website discussing why he choose to get degrees in both religious studies and horticulture
Most note worthy quote
"It works together in a really interesting way. I find that religious studies is a very powerful cultural tool to understanding the history of humanity. And to go along with that, there's something to be said about different cultures and their food laws and dietary restrictions; the cultures of societies and empires were all based on what their food systems were.""The intersection that's strongest for me (between religion and horticulture) is humanitarian efforts. Having a religious studies background really opens up the doors for anything relating to community development, non-profit work, and government work. I think what was nice about that is I got to understand culture from a different viewpoint."He works for a faith based non-profit, however he seems to be extremely financially motivated, more so than he is ethically motivated."It's a transformative major. Anything that studies the human condition allows you to adapt it to what is fitting and suitable for your interests." He continues, "Religion is everywhere. Religion is global. What I found most interesting about my major is learning the history of the world through religion."
Some other tidbits of info that might be helpful:
He seems much more organized than myself but doesn't seem to have much direction with his plans, almost like hes reached a stagnant point, if that makes sense.
When I asked him if he was interested in starting the business together strictly for the potential to make money or whether there was another motivating factor he laughed and said "of course it's for the money".
This guy met my EII friend at a party and described himself seeing my EII friend in the corner not talking to anyone, and approached him, and reported that all he had to do was prod him and he couldn't get the EII to stop talking. He said the EII talked too much.
When I asked him what his weaknesses were he described overloading his plate thinking he could accomplish everything by himself
He regularly visits edm dance bars, like every weekend, where he tries to pick up straight guys, fairly successfully from what he described
I will try to think of more that I can throw in there to help decipher but I am drawing blanks right now.
