During his talk, Theo said two things that left a deep impression on me. Theo said, "I had to experience hell to crave for heaven." It was years later, while attending school, that Theo was invited to prayer and heard the Gospel of Jesus. "Words you speak is what gives people life" said Theo.
I'm looking forward to reading his story. See the comments below for a link to his book.

I like technology including Android, Google App Engine, Google TV, and just about anything with UNIX genetics.
Photography has been a long time hobby since I bought my first Nikon FG SLR in 1985. I credit Google+ for a higher level of interest thanks to the ease in which I can see and appreciate the work of other, more skilled, photographers.
I'm an avid espresso/coffee drinker and have been roasting coffee since 1993. My wife and I owned a successful wholesale coffee roasting company called Jumpy Monkey which we sold in 2003. I'm currently working on a coffee roaster automation project involving Android.
