After spending six years as a hospital pharmacist, I walked away to focus on a better work/life balance in November 2021. I cofounded Elli Twy Publishing with my wife. Check out our work at www.ellitwy.com
Tesla's Forgotten Step-Child
An excerpt from my memoir, Shades of Resilience Chapter 3 2018 was shaping up to be the Year of Many Gray Hairs and how true it was. Spurred by the hectic first few months, the quest began to fulfill a host of bucket list items in an effort to live out my final hoorah before parenthood. One was to complete writing the first draft of A Glimpse of Color, the other being a sports car purchase worthy of satisfying the quarter-life crisis cliché. In the fall of 2008 during my first semester of college, a small company in California was making waves in the news over the first deliveries of an all-electric sports car that was to revolutionize the automotive industry. You may recognize the company, who bears the last name of the famed inventor, engineer, and pioneer, Nikola Tesla. Immediately I was drawn to the beautifully designed and sleek Tesla Roadster and followed the company closely ever since. With a price tag of over $130,000 at the height of the financial crisis and recession, dire was the word of the day in describing a tech startup disguised as an automaker. To the benefit of our country, Tesla survived by the skin of their teeth and went on to produce many more models in impressive amounts.
