Caleb P. Hobart was born and raised in a small town farming community in Iowa, since 2002 he has been living and working in Texas where Austin is home. After working Wall Street he moved to India and returned with a structural shift in his worldview without rules and the belief he can do whatever he wants. He is very thankful to be alive everyday after briefly dying and having lived through a five day coma. He knows happiness is possible and life may be lived with genuine satisfaction regardless of one's circumstances.
