In 1980 I moved from Little Rock, Arkansas to the Dallas, Texas area to work for a major defense contractor as an electronics test technician. Eventually, I worked my way into an engineering technician's position. As an engineering technician, I discovered my true passion - software and database development!
Eventually, I left the defense industry to begin a new career as a process engineering technician in the semiconductor industry. While working as a process engineering technician, I began pursuing a Bachelor of Science degree in Management Information Systems from University of Texas at Dallas. I have since kept up-to-data with some of the newer Web/software technologies by supplementing my MIS degree with yet another Associate’s Degree - this one in Software Development.
I still live in the Dallas area with my wife and daughter. My hobbies include aviation, working on my experimental airplane (an RV-9A), and keeping angelfish in my 300 gallon freshwater aquarium. I enjoy a good tough programming problem, all things aviation, and of course, database and software development!
