Life has to be discovered all the time.

My road in life has been direct.
When he was growing up, his father was in the Air Force, so his family moved around a lot.
As a result, he's never been scared to move for a job, which has been crucial to his job in the entertainment industry.
His first experience with production was working backstage in the student theater at his university.
Quickly realized that his work at the theater gave him more fulfillment than his law classes...and it was a great place to meet girls.
Today, he's widely considered an "expert" on producing the Olympics-he's been involved with the broadcasts of five different Olympic Games.
He's also produced major cultural events, like Sydney's New Year's Eve Celebrations at the turn of the millennium.
He likens finding the perfect job to falling in love-you won't know how to describe it, but when the right job comes along, you'll know.
Says the worst thought you can have is, "it's time for me to grow up and be sensible"; instead, you should be constantly exploring and discovering life.
