What was your first memory of using computers?
I was first drawn to the IT field when I began building my first computer in high school. It was extremely satisfying seeing the parts I researched and ordered online come together to create a fantastic machine! I never looked back!
When you’re not found in front of a computer you are…
On the motorcycle, playing poker, or working on the house!
What was the last great book you read?
“1,000 Barrels a Second.” It is about our society’s need for oil, and perhaps where things may be heading as its availability becomes scarce.
What would you do if you had an extra 5 hours every week?
I would do more hiking, climbing and work around the house!
If you could go anywhere for an entire month, where would it be and why would you go there?
Asia. I previously spent a month in China and loved it. I can’t wait to visit Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia, and to explore the history and eat more fantastic food!

CNBC radio for the news on the stock market and Shade 45 for hip hop on Sirius XM.
