I was born and raised in small-town, South Eastern Ohio on the western bank of the Ohio River. 

In July 1994, I earned an Associate's Degree in Architectural CADD and went on to earn an additional Associate's Degree in Computer Systems Management 6 months later.  I currently work as an Engineering Design Technician with the Missouri Department of Conservation. 

These days, I am your basic technophile - - if it's tech related, there's a good chance that I might find it interesting. 

I am self-taught (via reading and video tutorials just for the sake of learning something as I don't work as a programmer) in various programming languages including PHP, VB.net, VisualC#.net, and Web based technologies such as HTML.

I have studied (and would like to get back to) the martial arts earning a brown belt.
