Famous for its outlandish gay groups, earthquakes, gorgeous scenery and eccentrics, San Francisco is probably considered by many Europeans as the most beautiful city in the USA. With 43 hills and a population of free thinkers, crafty inventors, and weirdoes passing as normal, this city stubbornly refuses to be ordinary. San Francisco’s stratospheric real estate and stock booms and crashing busts aren’t for the weak of heart, but this town gives one hell of a ride. It is a place everyone should visit at least ones. It’s hard to resist with all its charm and nearby Sausalito, Napa Valley and Silicon Valley adds to the appeal. Bike over the Golden Bridge…what an experience!

He also won the Rookie Manager of the Year with his team winning the entire 4 month competition. As the economy was staggering, he became the head of the skills matrix (a system to design whether personnel was go to achieve or fail and give them an early farewell if they were to fail). This operation did not go well with sunny and cheer full Marc James and he opted to go to the Sunny Silicon Valley to gain his luck with the Dot Com Era.
He found a job at non-profit on-line marketing company but soon the company was bankrupt and he then became a project leader at a rising semi conductor company, however the bubble hit even worse but this give him the opportunity that he always loved to do: paint and dj.
