Most importantly, I am a Christian, a follower of Jesus Christ. I am married to Zora, with eight kids (three still living at home with us), and am active in Garden Park Mennonite Brethren Church (former Trustee Chair, former teacher), several nonprofit groups, writing, human rights, peace activism (Steering and Program Committees for 1990 Christian Peacemaker Teams international conference), and pro-life activism (Webmaster, former Director, and Past State President of Colorado Right to Life).
I worked at Mountain Bell/U S WEST/MediaOne/Qwest for 28.5 years as a Software Engineer/DBA/web developer. This involved lots of Odds & Ends, the most recent being Vantive client-server development tools, UNIX shell programming, ORACLE & Sybase applications development, Internet, PC assistance, Computer Virus background, Powerbuilder, Dreamweaver, PhotoShop, HTML, etc.
Due to various medical conditions, I'm unable to work regularly, but doing some intermittent volunteer work as I'm able.
