Walt is a displaced tech worker living on the streets of San Jose. He worked in the electronic industry for thirty years. Then around ten years ago, his job “went away”, and soon after he ended up homeless.

Walt claims to be “comfortably homeless.” He manages to stay warm. He manages to stay clean. Get gets off the streets into a hotel a few times a month. Although some might think this is OK, homelessness is never a way for people to live. Add to that Walt is a homeless veteran and a senior, he should not be on the streets of Silicon Valley.

Walk refuses to accept any kind of public assistance. He believes that type of support should go to women and families who need it. Instead, Walt plays his flute to raise the money he needs.
