Web Developer, Father, and Software Engineer in Minnesota
Mike has been a long-time geek. He started with using an Apple ][e. Later, he used to have to reinstall Windows many, many times on his dad’s computer in order to fix something he messed up. He originally went to college for networking, but also took the programming track (at the same time) under the guidance of his parents. Mike now prefers to program computers than fix them. He has been programming in RPG on the iSeries* since 2000 and has delved some into other languages including Java, C#.Net, and PHP. His other computer-based hobby is independent media (including podcasting).
Besides computers, Mike enjoys time with his wife and two children. He also enjoys role-playing games with his friends, wilderness camping and fishing with his father and “modern” camping with his family and in-laws.
