My here opinions are my own and don't reflect the views of anyone I'm employed by.
Who am I? I am a professional with skills in writing, PR, and customer service. I am highly skilled, intelligent, and learn new skills extremely quickly. I am humble, patient, and take direction well, but can operate independently effectively and I work well with others. I am a person who cares deeply about the job I do and creating a positive outcome for my clients.
Who am I? A product of the 21st century with my roots in the 20th. I'm a lifelong technology fan, most of it on Macs, former hardcore gamer, and guitar and auto geek. My other hobbies include history (especially military, aeronautical, and maritime), science (both physical and biological), philosophy, and when I need to decompress, you can find on a trail somewhere amongst the trees.
You can find me writing for technology sites, co-hosting Deconstruct, and being a semi-frequent guest on technology podcasts.
I hit .700 in little league one year. I'm not kidding.

This place is a technology mecca. KEF Speakers, HUGE curved UHD TV, 30 UpDesks, 3 robots, a giant psycho wall... I mean cyclorama. Just watch out for the Kreepy Kitty and the dynamic prank duo of Gio and Kubby. Also there's a Chihuahua visiting the place which doesn't serve you Taco Bell. If you're Dallas, and by Dallas I mean Farmers Branch, you have no excuse not to visit.
