An occasional outlet for my thoughts on life, technology, motorcycles, backpacking, kayaking, skydiving...

My first day at Apple.

What drives a programmer who makes $45 per hour to leave the safety of his home office for a $10 per hour retail job in a mall? Passion! Those of you who haven't experienced OS X and the new Apple Computing Experience will never understand this. Unless of course you visit me at the Apple Store in Lenox Mall, Atlanta Georgia. Cause if you do, you will be walking out of that store with a Mac Mini and a new found respect for an old computer company.

I haven't gone completely crazy. I still consult and that is where I draw my primary income, but what I do for a living and what I do to live are very different. I will be working at the Apple Store evenings and weekends. So if you are in the area, come see me.
This is not the Active Uniform shirt, just a gift in my welcome packet.

About Me

My photo

Believe it or not, I've never been to jail. Not even for a night. I quit going to bars by the time my fake ID was unnecessary, and I quit hacking into businesses and governments once they started paying me.

Now I just provide for my family and try not to notice politics. I get too angry when I watch how much of my income is taken from me, how it is used, and who is doing it. For the same reason, I can't bear to acknowledge celebrities.

After high school, I went to U of K but the outdated computer engineering curriculum and the seemingly endless amounts of money to be made with my internet specific skills drew me to larger tech markets. I have worked in Silicon Valley, New York City, and have settled in Atlanta.
