About the Author


The most accurate photo of me ever taken.

I work as a Server Support Specialist for the Howard County Public Schools in Ellicott City, MD. I hold the following professional certifications: CompTIA A+, CompTIA Network+, and MCTS: Microsoft Exchange Server 2010, Configuration. I used to be CCNA certified years ago, but I let it lapse.

My wife Ruth and I have a really cute dog – a dachshund named Charlie, a rather adventurous toddler named John, and an infant son named Isaac. We live in a wonderful neighborhood, surrounded by trees in Catonsville, MD. Catonsville is where I grew up, and I’ve lived here for most (but not all) of my life.

In addition to keeping up with technology for work, I love to read (especially about history and political philosophy). I’m an avid football fan. Autumn weekends are spent keeping up with my Ravens and Packers (and letting my wife keep up with her Redskins).

In nicer weather, I travel to Gettysburg as often as I can (on occasion, even during snow storms), dragging anyone who is willing along with me.
