Personal Stuff

I am married, with two children, and live in Northern California.  In my spare time I volunteer with Veterans Organizations and Toys for Tots.  For fun I like photography, philosophy, hiking, and the standard geeky nerdy stuff like comic books, SciFi, video games, etc…  Star Wars, Star Trek, Big Bang Theory, IT Crowd, blah, blah, blah…. I think you get the picture.

 

Fun Facts

I name all my computers after robots or AIs (Artificial Intelligence).  For example I named my Windows 10 laptop computer Bender10, I have a tablet named Twiki, my Kindle Fire is named Commander Data and my current phone named Skynet.  My iPod was named HAL for good reason!  My Xbox One is named Giskard (You get points if you know the reference without looking it up!).  Names I have used recently: Bender, BenderII, BenderIII, Bender7, BenderVII, Bender7-VM, Bender8, Bender10, BenderX, Veronica, Wall-E, HAL, Shockwave, Robbie, Johnny5, Optimus Prime, Cortona, Jarvis, Omega Supreme, Commander Data, Giskard, Joshua, Twiki, R2-D2, Unicron, and Skynet
