I am a native of Fannin County and graduated from Fannin County High School in 1988. I worked for several years in retail sales while completing my Bachelor's degree in Information Systems. Afterward I worked as a graphic designer and IT person at Excel Graphic Services in Blue Ridge.

I am a true geek and have been ever since using a touch screen computer at the 1982 World’s Fair in Knoxville, TN. I have owned various computers since then. I love Science Fiction and of course I am a huge Star Trek fan! Not to be confused with Star Wars. Although I do like Star Wars my favorite is Star Trek. I will answer to being a Trekkie or a Trekker.
