My top priorities in life are Christ, my wife, and my children, in that order. By profession I am an Access Technology Specialist. What that means in my day to day work is that my job is to help people of any age who are blind or visually impaired to use a computer independently for school, work, and/or fun.
I grew up primarily in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada and moved to Cincinnati, OH because of a job offer. I landed in Cincinnati with four bags and some cash in November of 1999 wondering if the tech world had prepared enough for Y2K. Two years later, in 2001, I would be driving in my car to an appointment when I heard on the radio that two planes had crashed into the Twin Towers. One year later I gave my life to Christ. A year later, in 2003, I married my wife, Heather. In 2008 we adopted our daughter, Aleah, and 2 years later we adopted our son C.J.
I am not a U.S. citizen yet but likely will become one. If I could vote, I would vote Libertarian where ever possible. I took my wife and daughter to the large Tea Party Rally in Washington, D.C. and I believe social services are best provided through private non-profit organizations who are more readily held accountable for poor practices. I have come to have a great respect for the Constitution of the United States and hope that there is a resurgence of it’s populace who truly study and understand what it says, and why.
For hobbies I enjoy spelunking (caving), Geo-caching, hiking, climbing, and piloting anything I can get my hands on. Naturally, I also enjoy just about anything computer and technology related. I also have an interest in macroeconomics, politics, and urban sustainability. So, now you know a little bit more about me.
