I have enjoyed working with computers for almost as long as I can remember. I used computers to learn programming in BASIC when I was very young. In middle school, I remember taking a night school class with my parents and other adults and I ended up helping the teacher with BASIC programming and other early computing topics. Later during college, I took some classes in programming in C. 

My wife and I are avid technophiles. You’ll rarely find us without some sort of device in our hands doing research, writing, drawing, photo-editing, creating websites, designing 3D models, playing video games, watching media, etc.

We cut the cord with cable TV years ago. We watch shows through Amazon Prime, Hulu Plus, Netflix, and Plex. Our main media devices are our iPhones and a Roku 4K TV.
