Is this a changed world? Well of course it is. I was born before the smart phone, before the internet, before the microwave, before the touch tone phone, before the answering machine (who has those anymore?), OK voice mail. Before the VCR. My God! I just realized I'm old! I'm okay with that.
My story is unique, as all stories about individuals are. I started out as the original computer coding nerd, when it wasn't so cool (even worked for DMV at one point, and wrote video games). I have remade myself more times than Madonna; into a blogger and now entrepreneur. Along the way I have worn so many hats, I've called myself a hacker, business analyst, solutions architect, webmaster, designed custom virtual worlds, worked on so many websites I loose track. Coded in languages now forgotten, photoshopped everything. Written science fiction stories and now have my own indie comic online for free.

Recently I have written Mobile Apps which help the speech impaired to speak, like the software that Stephen Hawking uses, but different still. This is the one thing I am most proud of because it helps so many people who really need, and use it daily. It hasn't made as much money as I would like, but that's okay . . . I've watched others around me make lots of money, doing not what they love, and be no happier.
As this is obviously a brag piece, I will continue. You are not obligated to read any further. Of course I say that just to get you to read more.
