Tell us a bit about yourself.
I’ve been playing around with computers since the Commodore 64 and Apple II were around. I’ve been working in the industry since about 1995, doing everything from building computers to telephone support to system administration. After the “bubble burst,” when work was harder to find, I decided to go to school. I’ve just about finished my second Associate degree. My first degree was in Network and Desktop Support and my second is in Computer Programming. I’m especially proud of the fact that maintained a 4.0 GPA throughout my college career.
I like to watch television with my wife, I play video games, I get out once in a while and go hiking. My wife and I have 10 parrots living with us, from tiny to large, and they keep us on our toes. And soon I hope to start working on restoring my 1965 Mustang.

What do you like most about your job?
Having one. School is interesting, but it sure is nice to have a full time job again.
And do you have a favorite quote?
“There are only 10 types of people in the world, those who understand binary, and those who don’t.”
