My Background

I have worked in the technology field since 2001, but my obsession with technology goes back to when I was a kid.  By the time I was 10, my parents friends and neighbors were asking me to put together their electronics and show them how they worked.  When I was 14, my dad bought a IBM 486DX2 PC and I promptly stripped it to its base parts.  After a lot of getting yelled at and a couple hours of reassembly, there was no denying my obsession with technology would become a lifestyle.

I have a Bachelors in Computer Science and currently work for a large software company. I have held positions as a programmer, web developer, network administrator and software solutions architect.  When I’m not working my full time job, automating my house or writing about home automation, I also fix and build computers.

You will only find my honest opinions and real life experiences on this site.  This site is funded with affiliate links, the proceeds of which allow me to purchase home automation products and provide the articles found here.  I hope you find the content here useful!


Happy automating!
