I am a Microsoft certified network engineer working for a small business consulting firm in Rockville, MD. I am also a devotee of Apple products, and as a result am the Apple "go to guy" for my firm. In addition to my IT work, I am also a musician. Brian Franke (www.brianfranke.com) and I perform as the acoustic duo Twelve Strings in the Washington, DC metro area. We play from Baltimore, MD to Centreville, VA. I am very happily married since June of 2010. My wife Alexis and I live in Reston, VA with our Basset Hound puppy and two cats. It is a bit of an animal kingdom.
