I have 40+ years of experience in the IT field and have worked in the Space Launch / Base Operations, Telecommunications, Finance, Medical Device, and Computer Manufacturing industries.
I’m a Chartered Lifetime Member of the British Computer Society.
In addition, I have a Master of Science in Computer Science from the New Jersey Institute of Technology. I have also acquired certifications in Software Testing, Quality Improvement, Information Technology (IT), Security, Agile, and Scrum.
Some Character Traits
In spite of the fact that I’ve worked as a Software Tester for most of my career, my educational background is in Computer Science.
My work philosophy is, “Be a Leader and avoid following the herd; stand on principle and eschew mediocrity.”
As far as social media goes, I prefer to remain off the grid.
I’ve mostly lived in rural areas, but I prefer to work in large cities.
I enjoy music and movies, but I prefer them without the excessive use of loops and CGI respectively. Consider what Hendrix did for psychedelic music using feedback and distortion. And for movies, consider what Willis O’Brien did in 1933 for the original King Kong and where Ray Harryhausen took special effects with stop motion animation.
I’m interested in Alternative Health Practices and Politically Incorrect fitness.
I believe in recycling and being a good steward of the natural world, but I’m not an environmentalist or vegetarian.
I’m interested in Christian Theology and other world religions, but I’m also interested in the Supernatural and the Occult.
My personality type has been self-assessed as the Mastermind role variant on the Keirsey Temperament Sorter which correlates to the INTJ (introversion, intuition, thinking, judgment) Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI). My Life Path number is 9 and according to numerology: “Judges, spiritual leaders, healers, and educators frequently have much 9 energy.” My spiritual gifts are Discernment, Prophecy, and Teaching.
