My Profile

I am an IT professional who has been working with computers since back in 1983!  My first computer was a Sharp PC-1500, then we were introduced to Apple 2c's running CP/M and then onto PCs.

I worked in the corporate world for 12 years, but have been on my own for the past six years.  The range of jobs I have had include being a hardware technician building computers at a systems integrator to being a Principal Software Engineer at a manufacturer of card personalization machines.  And, that's just in the computing field.  You can view My Resume for further details!  Other areas of interest have been working in retail, construction, teaching yoga and rock climbing.

I have also had the opportunity to travel a lot since 2002, going to India several times, Italy, Thailand and Malaysia.  I am also an avid rock climber, yogi, and raw vegan (~95% raw on a daily basis).  I can provide information and instruction in all these areas as well!  If you are interested in pictures of where I have traveled and rock climbed in recent years, then please check out these links:

Right now, I am working to build a neighborhood business, helping people out with their computers in their homes.  There are basically three things I bring to you: expertise, friendliness and reasonable rates!  Please select My Services and My Prices to see my offerings.  Please check my documents for information on computer and web-related procedures and health tips.  And, please do not hesitate to contact me for assistance!
