Me…

So, about me. . . Well, I was born in Sao Paulo, Brazil in 1969. My folks were down there for a few years due my father’s job with Goodyear. They brought me back home to Akron, Ohio when I was around 6 months. So, needless to say, I don’t remember jack. The rest of my formidable years were spent in Akron.

I have a sister, Tracy. She still lives up in Akron.

After graduating high school I attended the College of Wooster and the University of Akron — where I completed my college education. In the early 90′s my father was relocated — again — to Atlanta, Georgia. Well, being that Akron was cold and gray most of the year and lacked any decent jobs, I up and moved with them. I got a job at ACE Hardware fixing lawn mowers, weed eaters, and other garden/lawn equipment when I got down there. Boy, I was really making it in the world. My pops was proud of me! That college education was paying off in spades.

But, not long after getting this job I finally was able to secure a job in the tech sector. Peachtree Software was the first technology company I conned my way into. I worked there for 4-5 years as a Senior QA Associate. From there I was recruited down to Savannah, Georgia where I work as a Product Development Manager for Ligos Corporation, a software video compression company (you know, MPEG, H.264… well, maybe not, but you get the point). And, here I am — still — almost 15 years later. Savannah has grown on me over the years and the company I work for, well. . . I guess you could say it’s grown on me too. The founders are like brothers to me. And, I am still doing what I love.

I actually enjoy getting up each day and heading into work. . .

How many people can say that?!?

Living out on a coastal island and having the beach and ocean only ten minutes away doesn’t hurt either.

Interests:

Photography, aviation, traveling, web coding, computers and electronics in general, my wife, the ocean, fishing, and yardwork. Love that yardwork. In my previous life, I was for sure a migrant farm worker.

Music:

All over the place. . . I like rap, hard core metal, hard rock, southern rock, lite rock, rock, classical, jazz, funk, etc., etc., etc. You know, anything that appeals to my ears.
