My name is Chris Maltese I have had a number of jobs throughout my life so far, ranging from seasonal jobs working for Scuba San Diego, as a Trek leader with Trek America, for Mammoth Mountain, to even working in a lion act in the Great Moscow Circus to more long term self employment working as a financial adviser. In my spare time I volunteer as the chairman of the board of directors for a small, Los Angeles based, nonprofit and as an ESL tutor. Each one of these jobs have made me happy, each one offering its own brand of lifestyle and benefits. The answers I am going to give to the following questions are from the viewpoint of someone who craves freedom and adventure and has a disdain for restrictions and routine.
