Where does one begin when writing about ones self? Why does one even bother. Perhaps I have nothing better to do. Perhaps I have better things to do but just don’t feel like doing those things. Perhaps I just have a sick obsession with polluting the world wide web with yet another narcissistic display of self importance.
I have a persistent, unfaltering addiction to computers and technology. This is nothing new. I’ve been an enthusiast for as far back as I can remember. Back then for reasons I can’t explain I was simply intrigued by the humble beige boxes of my era.
Gradually I became more involved, fixing computers for neighbours and building desktops for whomever would ask. This inevitably lead to my first full time job – selling full PCs, components and anything related at OA Comp Inc. While at home, I never stopped playing. More programming languages, operating systems, networking gear, everything I could get my hands on.
Shortly before OA’s receivership I ended up working for Triton Networking Solutions Ltd / AirSurfer Wireless. Serving as their CTO, I was finally in a position with a legitimate use for the skills I had casually acquired.
The rest is history, each role I’ve taken on since has built on the roles that came before… I guess that’s how its supposed to work…
