My Name is Roger L. Bouwman. I was raised in West Michigan just a nice bike ride away from the Great Lakes and the city of Grand Rapids. I helped create our High School weight club and built the weights. While attending Hope College we created a weight club using an empty room in our dormitory basement.
While I attended college I worked in construction from cement footings, walls and flat work to carpentry through high school and college becoming a contractor and distributor of log homes for several years.
Taking an opportunity working in the local office furniture boom I moved into the office install business and while with a Chicago interiors company I managed the service contracts for Royal Insurance Corp in their offices across the United States. With the Dot Com bubble bursting in 2000 I looked elsewhere for employment.
Trying my hand at direct sales I founded a door to door frozen meat company , web site and ebay presence eventually selling the operations to a Florida based business man. I remained an ebay seller selling web sites and wild bird houses and feeders and I still build and host web sites for myself and over a dozen long time clients.
In October 2001 I started a career in Educational entertainment working in elementary schools up to Universities bringing fun and knowledge to children and young adults with one of many science or knowledge based shows.
In 2008 I found myself with a new hobby as a writer that has had some success with the publication of two works of Political action adventurer fiction, co-authoring a Gourmet Medical Cookbook with my son and writing and co-writing several movie scripts and and co-producing a new movie currently in production with several well known actors and UFC fighters.
I am a single, divorced father of three healthy young men with no known grand children to date.As my life changed my desire to be in Costa Rica grew. I felt a calling to be here and share my love of Costa Rica so I found a builder and came here to build a home for him to learn how to Build in Costa Rica and found myself booking tours and fishing trips and even Medical tourism and Natural Health alternatives and even selling a part of paradise to others who have felt the calling of Costa Rica.
