I am a technology professional currently living in China with my wife, teaching English, traveling, meeting new people and learning about Asian cultures. Eating lots of great food, collecting experiences and memories.

We have been living in China since the summer of 2008. WIth the downturn in the US economy we decided to take a break from the race and see what Asia had to offer for adventure. You can read about our journey at S and W Fine Froods.

Professionally, I started working with technology in the fall of 1999, just in time for Y2K. I am an experienced Windows network administrator. I am especially fascinated by information security and the failure modes of the technical solutions we take for granted every day.

A native Californian, I grew up in a predominately white suburb. Living in Asia has been a new and life-changing experience. I continue to be inspired and challenged by this phase my life.
