What was your first memory of using computers?
My first experience with a computer was around 1987. My mother brought home a Packard Bell Desktop with a 20 mb hard drive. My brother and I would spend days typing pre written code from manuals to produce short animated pictures of a clicking clock or dynamite that exploded. We thought it was the coolest thing in the world. Things have changed a bit since them.
When you’re not found in front of a computer you are…
Spending quality time with my wife Kyle and my two children Nina and Anthony, at the gym or catching a local football/baseball game.

The last great book I read was the “People’s History of the United States” by Howard Zinn.

I would learn to play the guitar or spend time working on the house.
If you could go anywhere for an entire month, where would it be and why would you go there?
I would go to the Almafi coast with my wife.

Anything and everything. My favorite app is Shazam. I love all types of music.
