About the Book

In this hybrid-memoir, inspired by his faith in Christ, Silvio takes a very honest, open-minded, and intrinsic look at the first thirty-three years of his existence. In this Volume I; he chronicles his first twenty-three years. From birth, through the early days, then through adolescence and the rough teenage years, up until when he graduates from college, Silvio examines why he made certain decisions along the way and how those decisions effected the trajectory of his life’s path. In Volume II, Silvio takes a very introspective journey through his adult life, after college. He shares his experiences in the professional world, as well as his very personal adventures in faith, family, friendship, or as Silvio refers to it; brotherhood, and of course; love. He ends Volume II at age thirty-three, a very pivotal point in his life when he found himself at yet another impasse both professionally and romantically. This memoir pays constant tribute to those who impacted Silvio amidst those first thirty-three years. From many family members, to friends, teachers, coaches and pastors, Silvio details very specific memories that took place with those influential individuals. How much better of a place would the world be if we all not only looked for the positives in the experiences we’ve shared with others, but we took the time to document those experiences and told people what they meant to us and what we learned from them?

About the Author

Silvio Tomeo-Nosdow is a man on a mission to better understand who he is today, and what made him this way. Silvio is a seasoned operations professional with close to fifteen years of progressive leadership experience. After undergoing multiple job separations due largely to the condition of the United States economy prior to 2010, he switched careers, and ended up spending eight life-changing years working in a residential treatment facility. Paradoxically, Silvio’s father spent the ages of nine through eighteen in an eerily similar environment, essentially growing up there. It was while working at the residential treatment facility where Silvio began to truly gain a better understanding of who he is as an individual. After being prompted to write multiple times throughout the course of his life; first by his mother, then by his father, who found it therapeutic to pen his thoughts, Silvio deemed writing to be the best way for him to both make peace with his past and have a clearer vision for his future.
