He is Beau Schutz, originally from Washington, D.C. (born & raised). After having spent 25 years in Orlando, FL (among other locales too numerous to mention), working in the construction trades - mainly, masonry, electrical, & roofing, and later acquiring A.S. Degrees in Business Administration & Mgmt, Computer Science, and Legal Research, he finally returned to settle down and live in central Israel (was also here many, many years ago - circa 1973, serving then in the IDF's special unit, Sayeret Matkal http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sayeret_Matkal), where he now owns & operates a computer consulting firm and performs recreationally (as a musician) at selected live music venues, folk clubs, parties and with friends.
Aside from playing jazz & blues flute (http://tinyurl.com/BeauJams) and percussion, which is his passion, and maintaining and supporting home and office computers and networks - which, for the last 21 years, has been his profession and a dedicated priority, his one other truly irrepressible devotion is to healthy diet and lifestyle. That is to say, in addition to striving to keep as physically fit - for his age (he'll turn 56 in Dec.'09) as his busy schedule allows, Beau is also an ardent advocate (to the extent possible) of natural, wholesome, unprocessed, environmentally friendly nutrition, and tries, whenever practicable, to include only whole, healthful foods in his diet. http://www.whfoods.com/foodstoc.php
And just to ensure that there wouldn't be any idle time left over, nearly 5 years ago, he took on the additional responsibility of becoming Owner/Moderator of the Tel Aviv English-speaking community's Yahoo Online (5,200 member) Bulletin Board, Taanglo (Tel Aviv Anglo Protexia): http://groups.yahoo.com/group/taanglo/
He is also Owner/Moderator of his own computer support forum for English-speakers throughout Israel (and occasionally elsewhere), IsraelPCdoctor: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/IsraelPCdoctor/ and
ABC-Israel (Association of Bank Customers - Israel)
http://finance.groups.yahoo.com/group/ABC-Israel/ and co-moderator of a number of other email groups/forums serving English-speakers in Israel, as well.
So between the computer business, the music, the healthy lifestyle regimen (and, of course, it generally does require significantly more time and effort to locate, acquire, properly store & prepare fresh, healthful, whole foods than standard fare), and the managing / moderating / maintaining of the assorted E-mail lists, (and - oh yes, by the way, also feeding and tending to many of the neighborhood's "homeless" cats), Beau's time - and energy - are quite well-accounted for.
