My first computer was an IBM PCJr. If you know anything about old computers, then you know that’s not saying much. It was useful for creating simple little games in BASIC, though. I guess that planted the interest in computers and soon after the Internet. I created the first incarnation of this web site in 1998.
I was in the band at my high school. I took it upon myself to create the official web site for the LaVergne High School Band. I played trumpet and flugelhorn in the marching band, wind ensemble, and jazz band. At the end of my junior year, I was asked to create the official site of LaVergne High School and became a part of the LaVergne High School Student Tech Team.
I have a general interest in anything electronic. I have been a licensed amateur radio operator since 1997 with a technician license. Additionally, I am an Eagle Scout. After graduating from high school I attended Middle Tennessee State University for a year before going to Berlin, Germany for two years as a missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I enjoyed my time there and had a lot of wonderful experiences. After returning home, I resumed my education at MTSU. Two years after returning home, I was married to Kara in the Nashville Tennessee Temple. Not long after that, I graduated from MTSU Magna Cum Laude with a B.S. in Computer Science.
In late May 2004, I started working for Federal Mogul. Federal Mogul is a global supplier of OEM and aftermarket automotive parts. I performed a number of different functions there while going to school. I created and managed multiple databases. I also created queries in the company’s SAP implementation. In June 2007, I accepted a job at Federal Mogul in SAP development. My resume can be accessed here.
