So what about me? I'm a family man. I have a wife and between the two of us we have 6 children. One is mine from my previous marriage and is now 22 years old and out of the house. Two of the children are my wife's from her previous marriage. One of those is 19 and currently lives with his father while he goes to college in Nebraska. Then together we have 3 children ranging in age from 9 to 6. We have fun.
I've always been in to computers and I like to build my own Windows PC's. This is because I like Windows for one thing but I also like to know exactly what parts I have in my PC as well I just like to have that control over what exactly goes into my PC. I initially went to school to get my Associates Degree as a Systems Analyst. I learned COBOL and C and even some Assembly language. I put that knowledge to good use for just over 10 years as a programmer/analyst on Tandem systems. However I had wanted to get in to web development for a while. The problem was finding a place to give me that chance since I had no formal education in any web development language. I was finally able to do that with a company called Oasis Gaming USA. A great bunch of people there.
I have been a contractor for most of my career but I am at a point where I really want to find that one good fulltime/permanent position with benefits. Both the family and I are tired of me having to find a new job every few months.
