I'm a geek \m/
Introduction

My hearts home is Santa Cruz, CA where I grew up and lived in until 2005.

I'm a technology enthusiast to a fault. I spend a great deal of my free time following the latest technology trends in a wide variety of areas including mobile tech, OS development, alternative energy, gaming and anything else I can get my greedy little knowledge hungry brain on. I have been described by co-workers and friends as a "swiss army knife" for my ability to solve such a wide variety of technology issues that are presented to me daily.

The number of gadgets, computers, games and software apps I own would be the envy of any technology columnist. There could hardly be an instance where I am not aware of some new technology development nor could I pass up on purchasing said tech just so I can satisfy my thirst for knowledge. Maybe i will start a tech review blog....

In my spare time I experiment with programming, PC building, home entertainment networking and most importantly, playing and learning with my son. I also enjoy playing the guitar and running (although not usually at the same time). When I get tired of the gadgetry I head to my garage and work on my 1964 Chevy II. I am also a pretty good artist, working mostly in pencil and lately trying my hand at painting with acrylics.

Always looking for the next thing to grab my interest and challenge my abilities.

Not sure what to say, amazing and so sad.
When Elizabeth Joice found out she was pregnant, she and her husband were ecstatic. Then her cancer came back.

They look great on paper, but in person, suddenly they don't.
