Who is this person?

[QUICK NOTE: If you're more interested in my job experience, please take a look at my resume.]

"But will it remove those pesky grass stains?"
Well, now you've done it. Somehow you went and got yourself stuck in my homepage. Wait a sec. Don't panic just yet, it'll all be OK in the morning. Just kick back, place your tongue firmly in cheek, grab a brew (or what/whoever) and see the sights. While you're at it, drop me a line and tell me what you think.

All set? Then here we go...

A heading that draws the eye and piques one's interest...
Or does it really?

Well, I guess I could tell you a little bit about myself. I was born at a very early age and since then I've lived in a lot of different states (Indiana, California, Pennsylvania, Georgia, Missouri, Texas, Confusion, North Carolina, Arizona, Illinois, Louisiana, and who knows where next...). Eventually I found myself at Rice University and decided to get me an edumacation. I wasn't in any hurry to go out into the "Real World" so after I was done with my undergrad I went back for a grad degree. You must be really bored to be reading all of this. Just thought I'd check. With that done and two nifty diplomas on my wall, I did some hunting around and found a job. Guess it had to happen eventually... In December, 2001, I was lucky enough to marry Jean Vanden Bos (now Jean Tanner ;^) at the Rice Chapel in Houston, TX. What with all the wedding-prep craziness, not to mention selling my house the day before the wedding (Stress? What stress?!), I've been way behind on highlighting the love o' my life on this site, but hopefully now I'll be able to get my act back together and pass on some info on the lovely lady.

Anyway, if I'm not wasting time here on the net (I really try not to spend too much time on these damn things..), you might be able to find me at my house (home of the Foe-Tay Pah-Tay) or at work.

Now, on to the rest of the page. Oh, and don't forget that there's always the Mech Drinking Game to help pass the time.

And now for a little bit o' Net Surfin'...
So how else do I like to waste my time? Glad you asked. When I'm not catching some Z's there's always:

  • Playing guitar and listening to music
  • Watching a movie or two
  • Working on my car (AKA "The Walrus")
  • Reading comics (Ever heard of Phil Foglio? His stuff is definitely worth checking out.)
  • Drawing T-Shirt designs and stuff, like this
  • I was doing some work on an animation-type thing for an achitecture course at Rice. Here's what I ended up with:
  • Presenting...
  • And here it is
  • Look out! It's gonna blow! (This actually has nothing to do with the final movie, it's just sorta neat looking)
  • Now if I can just get the timing on it fixed...
  • Juggling
  • I used to do a radio shift at KTRU 91.7 fm
  • Or hanging out at Valhalla and sipping on a Shiner Bock (Ah, the simple pleasures in life...)
  • Not too bloody exciting, eh?

    Had enough? Well, when ya gotta go ya gotta go.

    Heck, I didn't want you looking at my freakin' page anyway. Who needs ya? Go search the World-Wide Web for all I care. Sheesh. Some people. I mean... You give and you give and all they do is take take take. No pleazes. No thank yous. No large bundles of unmarked bills dropped off at a secret location.

    Just kidding.

    Don't forget to feed the dog on your way out...
    Cool looking dog, and you missed it!
