I have been a Marine, a businessman, a pastor, a story teller, a writer, a screenwriter and a world traveler. I been on Everest and the Matterhorn and camped in Death Valley. What grabs me and beguiles me are stories of men and women who defy the odds, who live on the edge, and who commit themselves to living the examined life in places that alter the way they see the world. They may be good. They may be bad. But they are unforgettable.
