Q: What is your current job (title and responsibilities)?
A: Computer God. If it winks, blinks, bleeps or beeps, I fix it.
Q: How did you get to this point in your career (what education
and previous jobs did you have)?
A: Self-taught. High school education, half a semester of a Computer
Science degree at University of Colorado. Computer Science at most
universities is a joke, many years behind the real world. I think there
are three people in the whole of Information Systems who actually have a
degree in computers.
5+ years in various computer tech and support jobs, with moonlight
programming and design thrown in.
Q: What was your personal motivation for following this path?
A: Cool place to visit. Makes better sense to get a job down here where
someone _pays_ you thousands of dollars to come here, as opposed to
taking a vacation cruise and paying someone else thousands of dollars.
Refreshing break from the O.J. Simpson hype in the Real World too.
Q: What are your goals during the next year?
A: Top Secret. Could tell you, but would have to kill you then. A partner
of mine is running my software development company while I'm away. Lots
of things to do there when I get back.
Q: What other personal tidbits would you like to share (hobbies, family,
A: Skiing! (Which we don't get to do down here.) Cycling. Writing.
Doing cool new things with computers. Digitial art and animation.
