Who am I? Although I often ask myself that same question, I have some details that provide an answer to those asking the question from a higher level.
I grew up in a suburb of Washington DC. My dad worked for the Fed. Government, and our daily newspaper carried more politics and international news in one day than some newspapers write about in a year. So, naturally, when I finished high school I went on to study Political Science at a small state college. Following my graduation I spent nearly ten years working on Capital Hill. I call those my "public service" years. At that time computers were becoming more and more prevalant, and I found myself spending as much time managing fledgling networks as I was working on legislative matters. In the end I grew tired of the commute and the low pay and left politics for the corporate IT world. I have used my programming and administrative skills to work in many different areas of IT at several different companies. I am now employed by a large hospitality company where I work in the Information Resources department. I still enjoy politics and I am an unabashed liberal.

This is fun. States I've visited are in red, states I've been meaning to visit in white.
