A COMPUTER GEEK born and raised, who raised four children on his own (they all survived and are thriving nicely, thank you) - affectionately known as the Mighty Four. Currently working as a Salesforce and MicroStrategy Architect, Administrator and Developer..
A COMIC BOOK COLLECTOR since childhood. Marvel and DC mainly. There are too many "others" now to keep track. ROM Spaceknight is still the best character ever created. Collecting comics is a great diversion, and keeps the kid in me alive.
A CHILDHOOD MUSICIAN who chose to pursue computers as his life's ambition (probably a wise decision) but who misses the performing arts tremendously. I still enjoy the occasional stage play or performance at my childrens' schools.
A LOYAL FRIEND, an obsessive-compulsive SEMI-PERFECTIONIST (that's supposed to sound ironic), and an opinionated but open-minded TECHNOPHILE.

We have just enough religion to make us hate, but not enough to make us love one another. (Johnathan Swift, 1700s AD)
Where words fail, music speaks. (Hans Christian Anderson, 1800s AD)
I seek not to know the answers, but to understand the questions. (Kwai Chang Caine, Kung Fu, 1972)
The avalanche has already begun. It's too late for the pebbles to vote. (Kosh, Babylon 5, 2257 AD)
Five card stud, nothing wild... and the sky's the limit. (Jean-Luc Picard, ST:TNG, 2371 AD)
