In the summer of 2005 I needed more money than what I was making as a one man video production company. I also wanted to get out of the editing booth so I answered a want-ad for a tower climber. It was physically difficult but a lot of fun and it wasn’t full time so I was able to keep up with the video work. When I was in Baghdad two years later I was able to picture Nick Berg on the towers there doing his thing before he was kidnapped and then killed by Abu Musab al-Zarqawi in 2004.

The First Tower I Climbed Was in Seaford, Delaware and It Was 520' tall
