We have two children, Mason (born in 2001) and Morgan (born in 2005), one cat (Dusty Springtail), and one dog (Molly Ringwald Brown).

EDUCATION: I have an Associates Degree in English/Journalism, a Bachelors of Organizational Leadership, and am currently pursuing a Master of Professional Writing degree at the University of Oklahoma.

Over the past 20+ years I have served as a Helpdesk/Technical Support Analyst, Computer Specialist/LAN Administrator, Senior Network Engineer, IT Security Specialist, member of the IT Communication Department, and Domain Admin/Enterprise Administrator.

HOBBIES: Old arcade games, old video games, and old computers. I also have interests in technology, computer security, and interactive fiction (text adventures).

I am also a “collector of collections” and collect lots of things, including (but not limited to) Star Wars figures and play sets, Fisher Price Adventure People, vinyl records, and all sorts of random silt from the 1980s.
