I grew up in the country outside of Monrovia, IN. After graduating high school I went to Purdue University to study physics. I changed my major a couple of time at Purdue. To computer science, then mathematics. After leaving Purdue I went through a variety of jobs including running a printing press, delivery driving, lithographic stripping, air traffic control, and desktop publishing before getting into what I do now. In 1994 I became the first full-time employee at the first ISP in central Indiana. I've been in managing the technical side of ISPs since then. Several companies, but mostly the same people. I'm also quite active with my church, Valley Mills Christian Church, and with The Circle of Janus, a local science fiction fan club.
