I have been using computers since I learned how to walk. Growing up, I would help my quadriplegic uncle Tony use his old Apple ][. I pretty much always knew I would have a career in technology. I graduated from the University of Florida with a Bachelors and a Masters in Computer Science. Since then, I have been working with PaleoSun, Inc, developing awesome websites for lots of incredible Asheville businesses, and loving every minute of it.
I love music. I pick around on the banjo, guitar, and mandolin, and play percussion and a variety of other instruments. I'm also a big fan of using my body as an instrument, with such skills as hand farting and Tuvan throat-singing.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
Well, I used to have a gigantic house and loved to host couchsurfers. Since then, I bought my own house, which is less gigantic, and far from town, so I don't do much hosting. However, I will be travelling in Europe soon, and am hoping to find some excellent couch hosts to show me around!
