Joined 15 years ago from Tacoma, Washington
Tom Koecke, aka Goldwing Tom, spent thirty years in consumer finance before retiring to become a freelance writer and consumer advocate. That didn't work out so well, so he now drives for a living!
He was the Jobs and Careers Steward with Helium, has several web sites, and occasionally hosts karaoke at local clubs. He has been a certified vocational teacher for credit, collections, and bankruptcy. He also has achieved the level of Competent Toastmaster twice, and is a devout parrothead!
He raised two daughters as a single father after his divorce, and is now a grandfather! Tom's passions include economics, philosophy, and reading to his granddaughter.
Tom brings an abundance of life experience and a sense of humor to his writing.
