Professionally I've been involved in software engineering/development for my entire career and continue to be enthralled by new technology and the opportunities it provides. I've been using UNIX-based systems at home and at work since college, and Linux since 1993. I tell my family, "I don't do Windows!"
For recreation I ski, scuba dive, bike, run, and take walks with our dogs.
