If it isn't obvious by now, computers are a major part of my life. I suppose that saying that isn't so uncommon now, since computers play such a major role in all our lives, but a good portion of my life is spent on the computer.

I have been using computers since gradeschool, most of my work day involves working with computers, several of my classes at night are computer related, and after I get home, I spend several hours online talking with my fiancee, Irene, who lives in Michigan.

I build computers for myself and for others, I'm a Network and Systems Administrator on a moderately sized Windows NT / Windows 98 network, and I have my own computer network running at home with my laptop, and two computers I have built.

I also do a ton of web design. You have probably noticed Reality Squared Design credited at the bottom of all my sites. That is my design outlet, which I am the sole member of.

I enjoy just about everything computers have to offer, from games, to graphics, to publishing, to organization and information resources. If you would like to learn more about my history with computers, you can. Or you can take a peek below to see what my current computer configuration is.
