I'm Working Optional - a dad to 2 kids, husband to a lovely wife. I grew up in India but moved to the US about 18 yrs ago. Living in Southern California for the last few years and loving it, even though the high(er) cost of living delays our FI/RE plans slightly :/. The wife and kids are happier in the sun, so it makes it worthwhile (atleast that's what I tell myself).
I found these forums a few weeks ago and am glad I did - I'm normally a lurker but decided to take the plunge and introduce myself :).
I'm a self-employed tech consultant working with clients here and offshore teams - pretty much what you'd expect. I've decided to challenge myself by doing things I'd never want to do, like starting a blog. I'm also working towards adding multiple sources of income over the next few years (blog excluded), so we'll see how that works out.
Looking forward to meeting you'll - both online and offline.
