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.  To date, no one has provided me with any products and I have not made a penny from my reviews…although I do hope that this site will someday support itself.  I hope you find the content here useful!


Happy automating!
