Curiosity is the wick in the candle of learning and curiosity is something that I possess in large amounts. From an early age, my favorite activity was taking things apart and seeing how they worked, why they worked. This curiosity has led me down several different avenues and has seen me take on some quite unusual endeavors, but it’s all in the name of learning. Ultimately, this is what sparked my interest in the field of technology. There are so many questions and, despite the amount of progress towards the field, much that remains to be answered.
But that is the beauty of learning, the more you know, the more there is to question and the more there is to question, the more opportunities that arise to learn.
Initially, I wanted to be a teacher, but my junior year of college (and my first formal exposure to this amazing thing called technology) led me into the computer science field. It was new and it was exciting, but my continued interest in it is definitely attributed to the phrases, “well, why’d it do that” and “how’d you get it to do that”. Outside of work, some time is spent playing music and trying to learn a new song or messing around in the wonderful world of video games. However, most of my time is spent almost exclusively with my wife, Amber and our 100lb. lapdog, Sampson, who also happens to answer to Sampsonian, buddy, and “Stop that!”
