I am a happily married software developer living in Jacksonville, Florida. My passion for technology goes back to grade school where I wrote my first application in BASIC to help prepare for a test. That started me down a path of lifelong learning in increasingly advanced technologies. I am a self taught developer who started out in the IT field doing desktop, network, and end user support. The steady need for one off tools led to me coding more and more custom tools. This would eventually translate into doing development full time. Currently, I am managing a small team of software developers. Some of the certifications I hold include Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP), Certified Secure Software Lifecycle Professional (CSSLP), Microsoft Certified Solutions Developer (MCSD), Six Sigma Black Belt, as well as ITIL V3 foundations.
Outside of the office I have many interests that keep me busy. These are not limited to hiking, camping, my dogs, Formula 1, cars, and watches just to name a few. I will probably keep this blog development focused, but may stray off into any of these topics on occasion.
