I think I would have been an artist, if I hadn't ended up a computer nerd. Maybe it was the video games or maybe it was the LEGO. I've learned to play a few instruments, and how to draw, and how to make things beautiful and delightful. But when your day job is punching a keyboard all day, its what you get good at. At least the pay is good.
I grew up in Texas, and more recently lived in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. I like Seattle the best.
I'd like to add that a lot of profile writers here seem kind of unsure of themselves. Don't worry! I realize most people are a work in progress whether they realize it or not, myself included. That's cool; we're adults. We can be honest and make mistakes.
