I finished a BS in Facilities Mgt. in 1988 and an MBA in 1990. I worked in what was then intelligent building controls via primitive networks. In 1991 I briefly worked for WordPerfect in Orem because I had seen a network once. Later that year, I started working for UVCC as a Network Mgr. Three years later I was being asked to teach networking so often I did not have time to do my job, so I applied for an open teaching position. I've been teaching IT since 1994. Early on I was interested in OSs other than Windows and began to play with OS/2. When IBM dropped OS/2, I looked at Linux. Linux has been and continues to be a significant portion of the (now) UVU IT degree (and CS) programs. I'm just beginning the dissertation phase of a PhD in Digital Sys Comm from ISU.

Current official contact for Ubuntu in the state of Utah. Original founder of the Ubuntu Utah Local Team. Working with local LUGs to help support, expand and advocate Ubuntu.
I've long been a programmer, but after getting an AS degree from SLCC in CIS I decided to go to film school at the U of U. I have been a perl programmer/web developer since 1997.
I have been using F/OSS since 2000, when I returned from an LDS mission. My brother, Hans, introduced me to Linux at that time. I'm a pragmatist -- I use Windows and other commercial software when necessary -- but I do prefer F/OSS when available and appropriate.
I've worked professionally as a computer programmer for eight years, with a two year haitus from 1998-2000. I currently do internal systems development at Prosper, Inc. in Provo. I am most familiar with web applications programming. I have extensive experience with web services technology.
