About

I wanted to give a brief introduction.

Huston Smith wrote a book The Religions of Man. In the beginning of the book, he states that he is will do his best to document the major religions of the world. He acknowledges his background and knows that it will influence how he documents his study of comparative religions. I am not referencing this book to initiate some type of religious debate, but rather to acknowledge that the experiences I have had will color my opinions – so I figure I would let you know a bit about me, to help you better understand what influences the perspectives I have.

Just because I don’t like something doesn’t necessarily mean that it isn’t any good, it might not suit my needs or life style. I would say that it is probably best we don’t all like the same things, otherwise the things I want to buy would be even more astronomically expensive using the theory of supply and demand system.

About me:

  • I work at Microsoft as a Technical Writer – currently full time, but I contracted off and on for a period of 5 years
  • I have worked IT for large and small companies and have managed both Microsoft and Novell networks
  • I taught Microsoft and Novell classes for over 10 years
  • I enjoy teaching others how to access and use technology – typically operating systems and network operations
  • I enjoy developing content that teaches others how to work with and access technology
  • I am good at finding information I don’t currently know – in this day and age of information, I don’t think it is important to have all the answers off of the top of your head, but knowing where to go to access this information is important
  • I enjoy working with wood and mechanics (car and motorcycle)
  • I once took 8 months off of work, and put 15,000 miles on my 1998 Harley Heritage Springer (I don’t currently own a motorcycle)

I may not always know the answer, but I am diligent about finding the answer, and that is what makes me – ‘A Good Guy to Know’

    Totally agree on not having to know all the answers! Definitely not possible, and may also be useless in a rapidly evolving world of technology. What you know today is history tomorrow!
