I began learning about and programming computers in 1979. My first computer was an Ohio Scientific C1P with 8K of RAM, a 6502 processor, and a cassette tape interface. Shortly after, I received an Apple ][ Plus and upgraded it to 48K of RAM and two 5.25 floppy drives. In 1983 I rewrote a CPM Inventory Management system and adapted it to the Apple ][ platform running under DOS 3.3. I attended Southwest Texas State University from 1983-1985, majoring in Computer Science and minoring in Mathematics. I returned to SWTSU in 1989 and majored in Organizational Communications with a minor in Psychology. I’ve written software in both Fortran 77 and Pascal. I graduated from Texas State in December 2021 with a BBA in Computer Information Systems. From 1985 to 1992, I worked as a shipping/receiving manager for Mervyn's Department Stores. From 1992 until 2018, I was in Cyber Operations in the United States Air Force, retiring as a Senior Master Sergeant (E8).
I have a BBA in Computer Information Systems and my PMP certification. I have traveled from the Pacific to the Atlantic, Baltic Sea, Mediterranean, Horn of Africa, and Southwest Asia. I lived in Europe for ten years. I enjoy photography, travel, good food, and cycling. I was a part of the Air Force Cycling Team for five years.
I'm familiar with the following programming languages: BASIC, Fortran, Pascal, Assembly, Java, C#, Python, R, and Perl.
