Who Am I? |
What Do I Believe? |
Briefly put, I am a God fearing college graduate of LeTourneau University, with a
bachelor's of science degree in Computer Science Engineering and
Electrical Engineering, as well as an Linux advocate. I am currently
working as an Electrical Engineer for Inovonics Wireless and as SysAdmin
and Webmaster for Instrument
Rental Labs. My home town is Boulder, Colorado, a very
interesting and unique place.
I first joined the Internet at the start of my sophomore year in
high school, and I have seen it change a great deal over the past
several years. My greatest interests is in computers, and all of the
interesting and varied things one can do with them, especially when
a number of them are connect together. My favorite operation system
is Linux, a free implementation
of UNIX for the Intel x86 line of processors (PC compatible
computers), as well for a number of other architectures. See my links page for where to find more information
about Linux. I also assist in running a web site for my college dorm, and for my scout troop. As well, I have
written a few search engines that are currently in use on the
Internet. One is the Boulder
County Trails Database, another is the Wildflowers of
Boulder County, and one other is a jobs
database for the University of Colorado undergrad lab. Lastly, I
am currently the webmaster for Instrument Rental
Lab's web site.
I do have other interests besides computers. I like to hike and
backpack in the Rocky Mountains. I have been part of Boy Scout Troop 171 since the end
of sixth grade, and received my Eagle Scout Rank in December,
1994. The above mentioned Boulder County Trails Database was the
service project that I carried out for the Eagle Rank. In what
limited free time I have, I enjoy reading quality science fiction
and other quality literature. Some of my favorite authors are Issac
Asimov, Arthur C. Clarke, Arthur Coylan Doyle, Anne McCaffrey, and
Frank E. Peretti. I also enjoy listening music, especially whenever
I am working at my computers (which is a lot :). My favorite type of
music to Contemporary Christian, and a few of my favorite artists
are Rich Mullins, Michael Card, David Meece, and Michael W. Smith.
LeTourneau University, where I attended undergraduate courses, is a
small, non-denominational, Christian college in Longview, TX. The
city of Longview is a medium sized city, located about halfway
between Dallas and Shreveport on I-20. I lived in the on campus
dorms, in a living area known unofficially as Dorm4, which is something of a
quasi-fraternity if you wanted to call it that. See Dorm4's web site
for more information about it. I graduated in May of 2000, with a
double major Bachlors of Science degree, in Computer Science &
Engineering, and in General Engineering with Electrical Emphasis
(have to love official names :).
The bible verse that is at the top of my web page is what one could
call my life verse. I have been a Christian since I was very young,
and have taken a serious interest in my faith since early in junior
high school. I was baptized during my sophomore year in high school at
First Presbyterian Church of
Boulder, Colorado, which I still regularlly attend.
I take my faith seriously, and it can best be summed up by
In my short years alive I have made an observations about being a
Christian. It is that we were never promised that life would be
boring, and my life has been anything but. Whenever my life begins to
get boring and routine, that is when I look out for major changes and
surprises. So, as my mother once put it best,
"Get a grip, God Wins!".
I invite you to explore the rest of my site and the other related
pages listed at the right, and check back to see any updates that I
have made (listed at the left). In the future I plan to add more
content to this site beyond what is already here, and I promise to
make a better effort to update this site more regularly (as in more
than once a century :).
- What I believe: That Jesus Christ is the son of
God, the one and only God, who created all that was, is,
and is to be. That Christ came to earth, was born a man,
and died on the cross as a man, so that mankind may be
saved from death and destruction. That man was created
perfect, BUT fell from this into corruption and death
though his own free will. That only through confession of
our sinfulness and guilt, and acceptance of Christ's death
as payment for those sins can we be saved, brought back
from spiritual death, and made one of God's childern. That
Christ rose from the dead and ascended into heaven. That
Christ is coming back one day to gather His Father's
childern and take them to their new home, ever to be with
- What I have seen: I have seen God carry me
through trials and tribulations of my life. God never
promised that I would have an easy life as a Christian,
but he did promise that he would be with me through it
all. And that he has! It has only been through his power
and grace that I have made it this far, and only through
his power and grace will I be able to carry on.
- What is the truth: In this world today, there
is an apparent lack of truth, absolute truth. And what has
been the result? Moral decay, chaos, fighting, and
wars. The lack of absolute truth is destroying our
culture, and in order for it to survive, we must
re-discover that absolute truth. Or we will join every
other major culture as just another entry in a history
book as a culture that rose up, was strong, and then fell
I am open to comments, or suggestions for improvement concerning
this web site. As well, I would be happy to just hear from any one
who visits this web site. Lastly, if you have any computer questions
(esp. Linux ones) and can't seem to find answers else where, feel
free to ask me. Also, I am open to questions relating to
Christianity, though I can't promise you I will know the answer, but
I should be able to point you in the right direction to find the
answers you seek. You can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
May God be with you.
