Where to begin...? I’m originally from outside of Scranton, PA (i.e. Middle of Nowhere). I lived there until the Fall of 2001 when I came down to Philly to attend Drexel as a student, and now I work for them.
It was because of Drexel that I got into Macs. I had used Macs back in the OS 6-7 days and was never that much of a fan. Using them at Drexel after OS X came out quickly changed my mind and I haven’t looked back since. Used to work at an Apple retail store and I loved it partly because it is so fantastic to be able to be around a group of people who were as enthusiastic about Macs as I am and also because it was nice to get paid to be there rather than just hanging out in the store.
There are so many facets to me, which makes it really hard to describe who I am. I’m very much a Geek and I embrace that term fully. I computers, fixing computers (hardware more than software), playing with all the newest gadgets... basically using computers and technology to fix the problems that I find, or at least just make life easier.
I’m also a gamer, consoles mostly (XBOX 360 and every Nintendo system ever made, except for Virtua Boy). I generally prefer RPG and RTS games but I’ll play just about anything.
On the opposite end of the spectrum I have a love for the Middle Ages. I love the idea of living in and with nature, I would love to be able to take a horse to work instead of the train, the ideology of true chivalry, the clothing from the period, and of course the weapons (swords/knives/axes/bows).
I love having an intellectual conversation. No grandstanding political diatribes or religious manifestos, just conversation. I’m more than happy to sit down with someone and talk politics, religion, Mac vs. Pc, philosophy, or any other topic as long as they are willing to listen to what I have to say as well. True conversation requires that everyone talks and more importantly that everyone listens.
There are so many more sides to me as well, but I guess you’ll just have to hang out with me sometime and try to find them.
