Richard Merk
Artist | Hobbyist | Digital Art
United States
In 1964, Richard Merk was born in East L.A. to his considerable surprise, so when his parents moved away to the house they would live in for the next twelve years, he (three years old at the time) cleverly stowed away in the trunk of their car.

Brought up in West Los Angeles and educated in Catholic schools, he took to outer space as a starship captain in an attempt to escape this desperate and tragic reality. Inexplicably, he eventually graduated from Servite High School in Anaheim. Then, ignoring angry mobs of protestors, he infiltrated Cal State Fullerton, from which he almost graduated.

Meanwhile, at the age of ten, he found the love of his life when he discovered his first science-fiction book. By the time he was sixteen, he began to write adventure stories, and by the time he was eighteen, he actually worked up the nerve to submit one. It was almost accepted. In 1982, he discovered the new love of his life when his parents gave him a computer thinking it would help him do better in school. He promptly began to write computer games. To date, he has started twelve computer game projects, seventeen computer utilities, four literary adventure sagas, two role playing game adventure series, three internet web sites — and one or two of them are almost finished.

As he grows older, he shows no signs of slacking off. He remains as youthful, as lively and as lovable as ever, and grows more ruggedly handsome with each passing year. You can be sure that this is true, since he has written this little resumé himself, and his unwavering devotion to absolute truth is notorious. And for once, he actually finished what he

I've added CloudConvert to my Google account, but now under Conversion Options, I'm asked for a password in order to extract the "" file. I don't know what to enter in the "Password of input file" field.

I downloaded the file in Safari. For some reason it doesn't work with the Brave browser.
