On the table lay a pair of scissors and a catalogue of office products. Directly opposite him, a large picture window afforded a breezy view of the Pacific Ocean lined with palm trees. "I love this place," said Nelson, a crisp, neatly dressed, balding 41-year-old, gazing wistfully out the window. "It's a very diverse community and I find that diversity challenging and appealing."
