I have been involved with technology since I was a child. I went to Aviation High School and passed my FAA Airframe Mechanics license exam at the age of 17.
I've also been involved with all things computers for a long time. Over the years I've built hundreds of computers ranging from full-tower units with 500 watt power supplies to shoebox-sized, mini-ITX fan-less HTPCs running Linux and XBMC. I rooted a Barnes and Noble Nook tablet and installed a custom Android ROM. I've turned a mini Android TV box into a Samba server. I also hacked a chromebook and installed Ubuntu Linux, making it my on-the-go development laptop.
The martial arts have been another life-long venture for me. I got involved in the martial arts during my time at Penn State, and achieved a high level of proficiency in Isshinryu Karate and Okinawan weaponry. I expanded my exploration by studying various other arts such as Muay Thai, Filipino stick fighting, Russian Martial Art, and Bruce Lee's Jeet Kune Do.
Studying martial arts led to other interests including human anatomy, bio-mechanics, health, and fitness. I also took a personal training course at Equinox Fitness and obtained a first-level Equinox certificate in personal training.
My interest in martial arts and fitness led to a writing hobby that included writing over half a dozen martial arts articles for such publications as Black Belt magazine and World of Martial Arts magazine.
I also learned how to design and layout books when I self-published two books on fitness and martial arts.
In addition to writing, my martial arts interest led to a love of travel. My first trek outside of the United States involved a one-year stay in Taiwan. During this time, I taught English to school children, trained with kung-fu masters, Muay Thai boxers, and spent some time in Okinawa, training with well-known Isshinryu master Angi Uezu.
I also traveled to Hong Kong, mainland China, South Korea, Okinawa, and Macau. The travel was great, the people kind and friendly, and the food fantastic!
Lastly, I have been a licensed X-Ray Technologist. Combining my interest in technology, anatomy, and health led to a degree in Radiologic Technology that led to a long career in the field of healthcare IT.
