I work for several small and medium sized businesses in the Portland area as their primary Systems Administrator, maintaining and upgrading their company IT infrastructure as necessary to support their business needs. I specialize in assisting non-profits, start-ups, and scientific/medical research organizations, and work primarily in a Microsoft Windows environment.
I also support several offices around town that work in areas such as accounting, taxes, finance, education, architecture, engineering, and many other areas, and am always happy to consider new work.
I have several clients that service low income people in healthcare and financial troubles and truly desire to help humanity in any way possible by using my skills for the betterment of the human race.

Professor Walter Lewin
"I am not a gender essentialist; Gender is an arbitrary cultural construct. Identity is unfixed and mutable and gender is performative; the sententious morality of black-and-white distinctions are an unnatural threat from an ancient past." ~ unknown
Facebook isn't real, it's an imaginary playland. Don't ever forget that. ~Ben
We can love each other and enjoy life, or judge each other and be miserable.
Scribbled secret notebooks for your own joy ~ Kerouac
"Nothing we have is worth hurting anyone else for. It's all fleeting people. Stop seeing race, religion, sex, orientation, colour, etc...
They are all just people, and if you try to love them you won't lose anything."
In tranced fixation dreaming upon the object before you.
The nail that sticks up must be pounded down. ~ common Japanese saying
Knowing ignorance is strength. Ignoring knowledge is sickness (Tao Te Ching)
We can no longer believe that we are born into a world to accumulate wealth and abandon ourselves to mortal pleasures. ~?
"The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn, like fabulous yellow Roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars, and in the middle, you see the blue center-light pop, and everybody goes ahh..."
"Give the other person a fine reputation to live up to...."
"...A really efficient totalitarian state would be one in which the all-powerful executive of political bosses and their army of managers control a population of slaves who do not have to be coerced, because they love their servitude..." - Aldous Huxley
William Torrey Harris, US Commissioner of Education from 1889-1906:
"Ninety-nine [students] out of a hundred are automata, careful to walk in prescribed paths, careful to follow the prescribed custom. This is not an accident but the result of substantial education which, scientifically defined, is the subsumption of the individual..." (from p. 13)
"...Everything we see hides another thing, we always want to see what is hidden by what we see." ~Magritte
Try to get people to think in terms of 'us' instead of me me me
Gear is awesome, especially new gear. And I'll geek out with the best of them. But at the end of the day, it's the brain 3 inches behind the camera that makes the photo.
"All men are brothers, we like to say, half-wishing sometimes in secret it were not true. But perhaps it is true. And is the evolutionary line from protozoan to Spinoza any less certain? That also may be true. We are obliged, therefore, to spread the news, painful and bitter though it may be for some to hear, that all living things on earth are kindred."
"Here's to the crazy ones. The Misfits. The Rebels. The trouble - makers. The round Heads Holes in the square. The ones who see things Differently. They're not Fond of the rules, and they have no respect for the status - quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify, or vilify them. But the only thing you can't do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And Them while some may see as the crazy ones, we see Genius. Because the people who are crazy Enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do " ~?
