Around the age of 10 his father brought home a new "original" Mac and he still has a fond spot for Carmen Sandiego. Since that time he has ran Macintosh/Apple BBS and ran and developed a MUD based on CircleMUD. When he went away to college for music, he starting building his own PC's and has built over 20 machines, many of which are now watercooled and overclocked. He currently runs a CentOS web and gaming server, a Ubuntu Sagetv HTPC, and an i7 Intel Music Production watercooled and overclocked machine.
In his spare time he can be found jamming on his guitar or piano, turning a wrench on his car, or saving the world on his gaming server.
