I was born in west Philadelphia (Will Smith style) but then quickly moved to the slightly less ghetto main line where I attended Lower Merion High School (Kobe Bryant style). High school was relatively uneventful because I spent most of it sitting in my room playing Everquest, but I also worked part-time at the exciting, fun-filled Penn Wynne Library.

I then matriculated to Brandeis University in lovely Waltham, Massachusetts where I majored in Computer Science and Mathematics. Yes, you read that right. At any other school I would have had a monopoly on geekiness however at Brandeis I fit in rather well among the likes of Beauty and the Geek reality TV star Richard Rubin.


I then went to work for Smart Business Consulting where I had worked as an intern during the previous two summers. There I met a large portion of the technology consulting team from Arthur Andersen who were laid off when Andersen went under indictment for their involvement in the Enron scandal.


It was at Smart that I began my training in the ways of the Jedi...and the ways of the Microsoft ASP.NET web programmer. But after working there for two years I felt it was time to find a job that could offer me more to look forward to than sitting in a cubicle hoping to one day get promoted to a larger cubicle with a door.

That is when I found Orbius. Orbius was a web startup company run by a bunch of cool (read: geeky) guys out of a house they rented in Newtown Square. It reminded me of the dot-com companies I read about in the late 90s and while we all know how that turned out, it seemed like those guys had a lot of fun while they were there.

Without going into the details, after working there for about a year the economy tanked and Orbius was forced to shut down its office so I am currently working from my home in center city Philadelphia, which is...Awesome! So there you have it, you now know who I am, but you'll have to read some Ayn Rand to find out who John Galt is.
