As the tagline states, I’m a 37-year-old professional nerd. I’ve worked in Software Engineering, Mainframes, Systems Engineering, and DoD Security.

This site began as a way for me to journal about my attempt to change careers and join the fire department.

I’m hoping that’s how it will end up.

Come with me and find out how it ends.

I used to be a professional nerd. At 37 years old I traded my checkouts for turnouts. (Any views/opinions expressed are strictly my own)
