Edgar is a common name from Old English words ead (meaning “rich, happy, prosperous”) + gar (meaning “spear”). Literally meaning “prosperity-spear” or “prosperous spearman. Which coincides with the character which I have built through life experiences.
Born and raised in the town of Lawrence MA, I found myself with life challenges and hard choices at an early age. The hardship my family faced do to poverty was what gave me the drive to succeed. Having a creative mind at a young age I realized that my imagination would carry me far in life. I found myself building robotics and writing descriptive stories, which were well beyond my age group.
In the future I would realize that the death of my father would derive me from the completion of school, but that did keep me from having an established career within a company where my skill set to teach and sale would become superior to those that had completed a full term in college. While I worked on my career I was awarded do to being the top performer in the nation for generating new business and growing current business.
For 5 years I was a safety consultant and trainer for large corporations in the New England area. I held presentations throughout New England and had traveled as far as New Jersey to present. During these presentations I showed companies to become OSHA compliant, while helping them to find a better solution to their safety needs and training, while cutting their current cost.
