Programming since 1977 (8 years old) Started on the commodore pet (Basic and Assembly) and progressed through the Atari 400/800, Apple II/e/c, PC DOS (Pascal, C, C++, Assembly).
During my early pre-business years I wrote two BBS systems and a MUD from scratch, a few BBS doors, and managed code from a custom circle MUD.
My main job over the past 20+ years has been computer networking, servers and security where I'm well known in the industry after catching numerous hackers and their subsequent prosecution. I used my programming skills and networking knowledge to write custom code for the purpose of catching hackers. In my network consulting role I wrote numerous utilities to repair issues I encountered for my clients.
Currently I use C#/C/C++, Flex, AS3, Coldfusion, PHP, jQuery, VBscript, and Powershell in Windows and Linux on MSSQL or MySQL.
I still consult but I'm working more as an entrepreneur now creating businesses with technology and helping others realize their ideas where they lack the technical experience to bring their idea to fruition.
My current project is a security product that automates security in an active directory environment for schools.
Outside of technology I love aviation and am a private pilot.
