I am an audio/video/I.T. engineer for Sovereign Grace Ministries, a family of Reformed charismatic protestant churches. I help record music albums and conferences, shoot and edit video, maintain our servers, and do desktop support for Mac and Windows.
Previously I was a computer programmer and system administrator for UUNET (now part of Verizon), the University of Maryland, Cygnus Support (now part of Red Hat), the Free Software Foundation, the Environmental Defense Fund, and St. Olaf College. As a programmer, I focused on Unix and similar platforms; I wrote or co-wrote a lot of the system utilities in GNU/Linux and contributed some improvements to Apache and ProFTPD.
I am married to Bridgette and we have a daughter, Casey.
I enjoy playing guitar and have played and recorded demos with a rock band and a folk band. I have played guitar, mandolin, and bass in worship bands for my church, but now I mainly do sound mixing for church and lead worship in my home group.
I also enjoy camping, hiking, mountain biking, volleyball, street hockey, playing with kids, baking (using some of my Dad’s recipes), collecting jokes and making horrible puns. I like reading nonfiction and witty, insightful cartoons like Tintin, Asterix, and Dilbert.
