    Armchair vagrant. Author of many a rant. That he will never recant. Such is his wont. Currently a penniless mendicant, on a path to reinvent. A confused soul - doctor to spin doctor, now writer and startupper, he is as random as his write-up. He wants to travel the world, but is too lazy to get his bum off the bean bag. Pass him the chips, will you?
