I grew up in Philadelphia, got my Bachelor's in English from Penn State, my Masters in Computer Information Systems from BU and was once a sargeant in the army, where I fixed electronic stuff.
I wanted to be a writer, even published a novel a long time ago, but have mostly made my living in the field of high tech since getting out of the army.
If I had my way I'd spend all my time sitting out by the pool with a laptop listening to music, reading history, writing, and taking an occassional dip, or splashing around with my daughters.
But I don't have my way. Oh, and there's also sykesvilleonline.com, which will someday rival the New York Times.
