More About Me:

My educational background is in psychology and statistics. I completed a Bachelors Degree in psychology in 1991 and was enrolled in a Masters of Science program between 1997 and 2000 but was unable to complete my thesis due to work and family constraints (with a bit of graduate school  disillusionment thrown in as well). Some of my other academic interests include brain and consciousness research, metaphysics and eastern philosophies.

I have also worked in the youth care industry developing programs for adolescent sexual and violent offenders. Although very stressful at times, I hope to return to helping youth in the future. Currently I am also exploring photography in an attempt to discover my "creative eye"...assuming I have one (or maybe even two).

I contribute(d) to the following FOSS development:
I am also familiar with the following FOSS:
Ubuntu., Trixbox, Suse, SugarCRM, RedHat, PHP, MySQL, Joomla, Hyperion, Snort, Asterisk, Apache
