Hi all, Retired about 10 years ago. Worked the last 5 years overseas with GTE, which became Verizon later!!! My last assignment before retiring was a Manager in a local Mexican Cellphone Comapany. After retiring, I decided to turn my automotive hobby shop into a master bedroom. (I had a very sucessful part-time auto repair business before i went overseas) I have never been in the construction business so my cousin planned and did most of the work. I learned and observed the building techniques and use of the equipments. Since then I started creating and constructing one of a kind projects and got into Fiber Optic Lighting. My home was featured in HGTV in 2007. I work on these projects during the day...but at night I turn into a "Party Animal!!!" We sing Karaoke 2 to 3 a week and go dancing and partying every week-end!!! I travel to Vegas, Philippines, go on cruises 3 to 4 times a year. Life is a "Blast!!!" Clarence "Tulips" How I got this nickname "Tulips" is another hilarious story!!!
Favorite area of home improvement:
I just love to create unique projects. When watching HGTV, DIY or any home improvement or arts and craft program I sometimes visualize enhancing the project and build from the basic structure to create a more unique project. Here is web-site featuring some of the projects: http://www.photodex.com/share/cnishimoto/k4c29mg4 ENJOY Clarence "Tulips"
