Working as an Analyst in Information Technology for the federal government, where I am an early adopter of new technology, such as cloud computing. Recommending enterprise-wide policy, process, and best practice for IT governance. Also writing about space, science, and technology for AirCacheBlast.com online magazine, and previously for Blast.com. I make financial and investment decisions from the perspective of the small, family investor. I "buy what I know", investing long term in technology or consumables that I understand and use myself.
