David Schneider is a polymath. Writer, Photographer, Builder, Logistician, Engineer, Student, Teacher, Thinker, David uses the talent of gathering skills to extend his abilities. He started his life of work as a teenaged entrepreneur; a lawn mowing business where he hired other kids to do the work while he supervised, sold and supplied the capital and equipment. In college and after David worked as an award winning newspaperman at small newspapers in the mid-west.
