Art In Unexpected Places_Featured Story

Every once in a while, you meet someone who is truly inspiring. And often it can be someone who you least expect. 

My story begins when I was at a ski trade show and had two hours between meetings. Having scoped out a decent little hall with long tables, chairs, and a strong WiFi signal, I sat down to peck away at my computer and get some work done.

While I was engrossed in whatever it was that I was doing, I did not pay attention to what was going on around me, and as the hall was being transformed I was slightly confused as a young man came up and sat across from me and started seriously chatting me up.
