Who am I
I am a guy who has many passions in life. Some fun facts:
I recently moved to my lake home in Brainerd.
I love boating and biking in the Brainerd area. I have a pontoon, road bike and fat tire bike.
I am a musician and I sing play bass in a band called the HeBeGB's. I have played with 4 of the 5 guys since I was in Jr. High. We gig once a month or so and it is a blast. I am really lucky to have these friends that I can enjoy this hobby.
I also play and sing acoustic guitar. Looking to get more solo or small group gigs.
I am the father of two wonderful kids. Alex (Alexandra) lives in Portland works in Social Media Marketing. She loves her dog and has a great group of friends. My Son Jake is married to special lady Katy, He works for a software company in town and is also a musician. I am very proud of my kids and love them beyond words.
I have been divorced for several years and still have a great relationship with Kristi. She is a great woman and I am blessed to have her in my life.
For 29 years I was an part owner of Elert & Associates, and independent consulting group. I sold that practice off at the end of 2017. I was not done working and was looking for a new opportunity and life got in the way. I was diagnosed with cancer on my tongue. The treatment was brutal but successful. I am now considered cured and I bring this up because it defines me. It has provided me a new perspective on life and I can say I am happier now than I have ever been in my life. Tomorrow is not guaranteed so "living for today" is very real to me. This does not mean that I have no focus on tomorrow. I just don't have anxiety about it!!
So what do you do when you have loved what you do for nearly 30 years and you have just had a life changing experience?
You take all that you have learned and you open a new business called Pavek Technology Group!!
