About Lester Pete
I am Lester Pete. I live a "Pater Pan-esque" existence in my home town of Phoenix, Arizona, USA. By day, I provide consulting and support services to businesses in the local Phoenix area. By night, I don cape & mask and, as much needed respite from things logical and technical, I set out watching and writing about things I see.
I tend to stay away from the limelight, left of center stage, or out of focus with the attention. I remain on the periphery, studying and observing, ever the vigilant viewer; a master 'observater' if you will. I find humor to be the most noble of human traits and therefore find nothing too sacred to poke fun at. "Life is far too important to be taken seriously."
I appreciate this opportunity to enter into your community and look forward to experiencing that which is Ely.

Much of my education and upbringing has been Ameri-centric and as such, I have a tendency to see things as an American (go figure). I […]
