This is the ramblings about my life, my hobbies, and my thoughts.I am a second generation systems engineer.

I grew up with my father telecommuting to the ‘minicomputers’ during the 1970’s. I have been earning money supporting open software for over 20 years now, and most of that time Linux. My first kernel I installed was 0.92. I first RHCE was in July 1999 for Red Hat 6.0. Not RHEL 6.0, Red Hat 6.0. I am also a photographer. I tend to do natural and suburban, but I have been known to do some travel and environmental portraiture as well.
