My email address is

I live out on an old farmstead in rural Kansas that once belonged to my grandparents. The nearest paved road is about 3 miles away, and the nearest town (population 600) is 7 miles away. I have two incredible boys, which I might occasionally mention on my blog.

Professional Activities

My hobby and profession involves programming and system administration. I have released many programs as Free Software, which you are welcome to download, examine, and share. I am a developer for the Debian GNU/Linux operating system, and have been since the late 1990s. I've written some books about programming and operating systems.

I'm an IT development manager at a mid-sized manufacturing company in Kansas. I've led or implemented projects to implement VOIP internally using Asterisk, upgrade our network and server infrastructure, establish multiple electronic links with business partners, and develop web interfaces for our customers' use.
