About Me

The photo is Major General Lewis Wallace, 11th Indiana Infantry, during the US Civil War.
I don't look anything like him.

I am a business owner (you need violins? I'm your guy!) and father of three in Wisconsin. I live quite close to beautiful Lake Michigan. I cook quiche at least once a week.

I don't have a degree in IT or CS, though I do have a couple other degrees. My skills are entirely self-taught or net-taught, and I use them frequently to help people in the forums, or in my business.

I am attracted to projects and tasks that are important, and need to be done well, but are not flashy.

I began using Ubuntu in 2005, began to get involved in 2008, and gained Ubuntu Membership in 2011.

I'm currently most active in support on Ubuntuforums.
