The purpose of this page is to describe all the characteristics, traits and skills of what embodies the Renaissance Man I strive to become. Presently this represents a gamut of my desires, goals, and if you read between the lines, even my values. (Once I have more content published each grouping/skill will link to the category of post(s) that it pertains to). Each of the following categories or skills, essentially marks the end result or completion of a certain degree of skill, with the ultimate goal of mastery. This blog will chronicle the rise in each grouping. Some skills are already moderately developed, some have atrophied, and some are non-existent presently. This is my list.
