About Me

 IanPhoto

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.

 

Most importantly, I am a Christian, as this blog clearly reflects.  My faith is firmly rooted in the fundamental and historical principles of authentic Christianity.  My beliefs find expression in the first three great creeds of the church: The Apostles Creed, The Nicene Creed, The Athanasian Creed, all three of which I am in full agreement with.  Furthermore, most of the articles on this blog will be primarily shaped by the beliefs of the early Church as articulated through the first seven great Ecumenical Councils which shape the foundations of Christianity and the Church.  I am both Catholic and Orthodox in my theology and liturgical expression.  I reject the later teachings and heresies of the Reformation and the late developments within the Roman Catholic Church, though I find no reason to question the salvation or personal faith of the individual believers in those churches, all of whom I consider brothers and sisters in Christ.

I am studying for the priesthood, under episcopal supervision.
