Where do I begin...
I'm originally from Trenton, Ohio. That makes me a Cincinnati Reds fan. They've had a few of seasons of let downs recently, but I'm the eternal optimist. For the 2003 season they opened their new stadium, Great American Ballpark, which is a really nice looking new park. I had the opportunity to make the trip back to Cincy in July of 2003 to see a couple of games during the inaugural season. It was well worth the effort. I've been trying each year to get back for a couple games, but it hasn't worked out for one reason or another. Maybe this will be the year.
I'm picking up the guitar again after several years away from it. It's been tough knocking off the rust, but I think I'm making some progress. Check out my current equipment, some short tunes and other music info on my guitar page.I've also been collaborating with a Charlie Wardick and others whom I met in the alt.guitar Usenet group. You can check out our works on the Project-43 web site. It's really amazing what can be accomplished solely over the web.
I'm now living and working in Pewaukee, Wisconsin where I'm the IT Manager for a local Mechanical Contractor. I've been in Wisconsin now for over ten years. I started in Sheboygan, then moved to Greenfield before relocating once more, to Pewaukee. Hopefully, this will be the last stop for a while. Kathy and I are much happier being so close to work. A seven minute drive each morning with no highways, certainly makes for a great start to the day.
When I'm not playing guitar, I spend most of my free time by feeding my 'Home Theater' addiction. This hobby is not only a money hog, but it can take quite a bit of your free time just keep up with the new technologies as you try to "keep up with the Jones's". You can find LOTS of Home Theater, HDTV and audio advice in the AVS forums.
