I was born and raised in coastal Georgia just outside of Savannah. From a young age I was interested in fixing and tinkering with things. Although I didn't appreciate it at the time, we never had cable TV in the house. This lead to spending more time tinkering with the family computer, an IBM PC clone, complete with dual 5.25" floppy drives and green monochrome adapter. I was fasciniated that I could make it do whatever I told it to. I remained a computer enthusiast for quite a while but didn't consider making a professional career out of it until taking a Java class and having the spark reignited.
I moved to Atlanta 12 years ago. My wife, Lara, and I have been married for 10 years and we have two daughters. In my free time, I like to work in the yard when it is nice outside or maybe catch up on some reading when the weather isn't so good. I can still be found tinkering with things, whether this involves fixing a friend’s computer or taking on a big project in the renovations of our house.
