• Born and raised in Aurora, Colorado.
  • Ran away from home and joined the US Army where I learned some completely useless skills unless you want some help destabilizing a foreign government. I was a complete fool back then living in jungles and jumping out of crappy aircraft.
  • Went to the University of Colorado where I received my BSBA in Business Finance and my MBA in Information Systems.
  • Discovered the world of computers while at Texas A&M as a Ph.D. candidate.
  • Created my own white box computer company and consulting firm, Advanced Computing, in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
  • Worked my way through lots of jobs that got geekier and geekier until I reached my current level.
