I have been described by some as a nerd. I like to think that I am a nerd with social skills. I started a data center inside of a coat closet in my apartment while I was in college. I enjoy Weird Al music among other things. I am catching up on Star Trek TOS. My favorite band is the Eagles. Sometimes I think I know how to play guitar.
I enjoy traveling by train and cycling. Another passion of mine besides technology is model trains. Although I have been without a train layout for several years, I hope to have one setup sometime this decade if I can ever stop fidgeting with technology. I am a native of Northern California, specifically the San Francisco Bay Area.
Formally, I graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Computer Information Technology from Brigham Young University – Idaho in Rexburg, Idaho. I benefited greatly from many knowledgeable professors who promoted a hands on approach to learning current technology.
