Some might consider me an irascible and opinionated curmudgeon, and I hate
to disappoint them. A few have expressed better opinions of me, and I

"Here's to the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in the square holes...the ones who see things differently -- they're not fond of rules... You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them, but the only thing you can't do is ignore them because they change things... they push the human race forward, and while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius, because the ones who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world, are the ones who do." - Steve Jobs

Anything done should be done well, and I'm an over-achiever in everything I do. Life is like champagne! I believe that every day is Saturday night, and every Saturday night is New Year's Eve! But doing one thing well "forever" couldn't be more boring. While I excel in music as a classical pianist, my interests are infinite - from science, literature, technology, and electronics to culinary arts, crafts, hobbies, and everything in-between.
Thomas Edison once said "show me a satisfied man and I'll show you a failure". I believe he meant that we should briefly savor our achievements and then move on to conquer something else. Subscribing to that theory, there have been many reincarnations and several careers in my life, corporate and otherwise, all vastly different and equally rewarding. Now, nearing 69, I just graduated with a GPA of 99% for 4.0, passed the national board exam and am now a nationally certified licensed massage therapist. In Sept. 2011 I plan to to go back to school and hope to get my degree in 2016 at age 75. Something new - something different - something else to "master". Am beginning to think my role in life is to inspire others to continue to learn and grow. If I fear anything, it's losing my mind.

Keith Tutera M.A.
Keith was attracted to Intertel initially by its literary focus and has since published short fiction in Intertel's journal, Integra. His work has also appeared in a variety of other international media including the silver screen, the talkie box, the interwebs, books, magazines and even the good ol' radio. He currently resides in the "beautiful mess" that is Los Angeles where he relishes every hike, game of beach volleyball and opportunity to eat food from a truck parked on the street.
When he's not storytelling or nerding out with other bibliophiles at his book club, he shares his love for language arts with kids through 826LA, and prior to that through Literacy Chicago and Boston Colegio Universitario in San Jose, Costa Rica where he taught. He concurs fervently with Plato that "I know that I know nothing" and witnesses that truism in his life daily, often more than he'd like.
