I guess I have time to blog, now that I’m done with school. I just graduated magna cum laude with a BA in Business Managment from UVSC. It’s been long and sucky, but now it’s over. :) Actually, I rather enjoyed the experience and will look back with fondness. Hopefully I’ll be able to continue learning everyday, an effort that may actually be easier now that school is out.
A bit about me:
I’ve been married for almost 2 years and have 1 kid on the way, a (currently unnamed) girl due on Feb 15, 2006. My wife (Julie) is awesome and we both come from good, close families.
I served as a missionary for the LDS church in Joao Pessoa, Brazil. I speak fluent Portuguese and decent Spanish. I’m a big music fan and like to play guitar (another hobby long-neglected because of school).
I’m 27 years old and have worked for most of my life (since junior high) at Castle Rock, my dad’s souvenir shop in Orem, UT. It’s been great for me because I’ve been able to work with and learn from my dad, who is one of the kindest people in the world. It’s also been very flexible, which is important for anyone trying to succeed in school. I recently started a job as a “Small Business Portfolio / Project Manager” at Provo Labs, Paul B. Allen‘s recently funded internet business incubator. My first day is tomorrow, and I’m excited to learn.
I’ve also been fairly involved in the open source community in Utah, co-founding the Utah Valley Linux Users Group and doing some (mostly nominal) work with the Software for Starving Students project.
Well, that’s probably enough for a first post. Don’t want to bore my 0 readers. :)
