Story
Tagline
Husband, father, military officer, tech & productivity enthusiast, life coach. It is my mission to provide answers to questions and solutions to problems.
Introduction
I am an avid tech junkie with a wife of 20+ years, two kids (one of each), and a dog. Other than the dog, we all have more gadgets and gizmos than we could possibly need. But that's the fun! It can get frustrating at times keeping everything connected and working properly, but I love technology and want to ensure my family is able to navigate through this sometimes treacherous maze of chips and resistors.
Bragging rights
The right mix of technology and productivity, with a measure of motorcycling added for spice.
