Tell us a little about yourself!
  • I am an avid home brewer, musician and car nut. Music has been a large part of my life since a young age. I currently play in 2 bands in Santa Barbara county covering Classic Rock. Brewing has been a hobby for 6 or so years and has been a great way to spend time with my family and friends. My 1990 Mazda Miata has been an amazing hobby/project over the past few years. I have made new friends, traveled new places, done a few track days and well, blew up the car. All in all, i say it has been fun. And, of course I do enjoy computers, building many for friends and always finding a new project to work on in my free time.
