About Me

I am a PeopleSoft Technical Consultant.  I work for a small consulting firm who places me in contracts that generally have started as short term but have extended much longer.

I started my life with computers in middle school.  My programming started in eighth grade with Visual Basic.  For college, I got a computer science degree, and then, I started programming contracts.  At first, I was using Java, but then, I worked my way into SQR and finally PeopleTools.
