A California native, I was raised in Van Nuys, CA just north of Los Angeles. I joined the Navy in 1986, serving four years aboard a Destroyer deployed to the western Pacific. We sailed from the Bering Sea to the Persian Gulf. I've visited Japan, Hong Kong, the Phillipines, Australia, South Korea, Thailand, and Canada.
After my tour, I was briefly involved with Murder Mystery Weekend, and re-entered the IT field in 1991, where I've been ever since. I've done IT work in OEM manufacturing, long haul fiber optics, online gaming, Department of Defense, and am currently Vice President of Technology at OneCoach in Carlsbad, CA.
I live in Oceanside, CA with my wife Caroline, our two sons Nicholas and Marc, and my tabby cat "Little Bit".
