Hello, and thanks for stopping by my little slice of the web.
I work in the healthcare information technology field and am involved in information security, computer/network administration and engineering, and anything else you can think of. I work with Linux, Unix, AS/400, Windows and Apple. I am also a bit of a security geek, and constantly working to improve awareness of information security. I have an AAS in Information Technology and am pursuing a Bachelors degree at Western Governors University in Information Security
Other than the fact that I am married to an extraordinary woman, and have a great son and daughter-in-law, there a few more things about me that may or may not interest the reader. I am an avid martial artist, a veteran of the U.S. Army, love sailing, backpacking, and video games. Enjoy collecting real books, but am usually reading on the Kindle. Oh yes, I love Harley-Davidson’s. I am a former Harley mechanic and spent a year and a half at the Motorcycle Mechanics Institute. My current ride is a 2015 FLD Switchback.
One of my great passions (can you say addiction) is bicycle riding. I bought my first serious road bike at the age of seventeen, a teal and white Schwinn Tempo with the first Shimano 105 indexed shifting group. I spent an entire summer saving for that bike, and I’ve never looked back. When most kids were watching basketball or football, I was falling the career of great riders like Bernard Hinault and Greg LeMond. Even during a four year stint in the Army I was riding. I have become a serious proponent of cycling as a means of maintaining health into ones later years, a form of exercise that is both enjoyable and practical for all ages.
