I've had a well rounded technical life. It all started with building an electric motor from scratch with my Dad. That led to a college degree in Electrical Engineering, and then my first true technology job working at IBM's Almaden Research Center. Then it was on to "real jobs" such as an instructor writing system administration manuals and teaching classes from them in far flung places like Tokyo, testing and developing internet advertising systems, building highly concurrent distributed key-value data storage and finally landing here at Tripwire where as a System Architect I enable teams to design and build security systems that make the online world a safer place.
