About Me

I am a tech guy, railroad and history enthusiast, casual writer, lifelong learner.

Originally from Nebraska, I now live in the Twin Cities area with my wife and son where I enjoy train spotting, building stuff, and gardening. I also recently got into ham radio (KØRRX) and enjoy working the local 2 meter repeaters. I keep busy with home projects too.

On the technology side of things I enjoy focusing on the needs of the individual user, keeping up with trends in content production and distribution, change and disruption, and security.

I received an Associate of Applied Science degree in Computer Programming Technologies from Southeast Community College, Milford, Nebraska, in 1997. In 2002 I completed my Bachelor of Arts degree majoring in English Writing and Quantitative Methods and Computer Science from the University of St. Thomas in Minnesota. In 2011 I received my Master of Science in Software Engineering (computer security concentration) from St. Thomas as well.

I’ve worked at St. Thomas first as a student starting in 1998 and then full-time since 2002. As a student I worked mainly in technology support and publishing in many departments including Catholic Digest (website), Information Resources and Technologies (client services), and University Relations (St. Thomas Magazine). My first full time job at the university was as a Department Systems Specialist in the Career Development Center, a position I held for 13 years. I am currently a Web Developer for the university’s libraries.

    Hi, Robert. I’m sorry, I don’t have any info on that. I looked through my books and couldn’t find any examples. Sorry, wish I could help.
