I have grown up and still live in Orlando, Florida. Currently I work as a Senior Network Systems Analyst for a well known company in Heathrow, Florida. My goal is to eventually leave my regular job and move onto running my own business full time.
I enlisted in the United States Marine Corps in 1995 as a 4066 – Small Computer Systems Specialist. I went to boot camp at Paris Island, South Carolina and was stationed with Marine Wing Comm Squadron 38 out of Marine Corps Station El Toro. In 1998, I spent 6 months over seas in Operation Southern Watch at Eskan Village located in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia becoming submersed in world of Solaris unix systems administration. I was honorably discharged in 2002.
I stayed out in California for a bit longer working for Kyocera America. It was a plant out of San Diego that manufactures the ceramic wafers used in micro electronics such as processors and such. I eventually came back to Orlando in 2000 and went to work for a small web hosting company called Web2010, now known as HostCentric.
In 2005, I started to run my own niche e-business distributing automotive performance parts called Tearstone Performance. As of 2008, Tearstone Performance closed it’s doors to reselling parts then was positioned to support and run web forums.
In 2010, I have started to spread out my interests past cars and computers into other hobbies. At the beginning of the year, I picked up my “General” amateur radio license and go by FCC distributed call sign of “KJ4SLR”. Ironically, that also plays into my passion in photography. I am currently using a Nikon D90 SLR camera, which has been a great tool for capturing the world as I see it.
