Day 31: Happy Halloween! Meeting Douglas, Former Computer Engineer

Happy Halloween! This afternoon we met Douglas, who immediately recognized our Makeshift Traveler from our good friend, Perry. Douglas was lively and excited as we chatted about numerous topics, from politics to leadership to Halloween.

Douglas shared his story of experiencing homelessness in San Francisco for over eight years. Before being unhoused, Douglas was a computer software engineer for many companies in Berkeley and San Francisco. Ultimately, some personal charges caused him to lose his property, and he gradually became homeless.

I promised Douglas that I would mention in our blog post that he still wants to be President someday, and he certainly had the charisma to do that. Douglas was a pleasure to chat with in learning his story. He had a great sense of imagination and curiosity to him.
