Personal.

Well, I recently turned 50 years old and being the son of a professional musician (Dad) and a writer (Mom), I have had the opportunity to use both of the these traits, though not as much as my parents have, especially the writing part.  I truly enjoy playing music and writing the occasional technical thing or two.  I can get wordy so I have to tone that back.  But, since this is my Blog site, perhaps you can endulge me to get a little crazy now and then.

I’m a happily married man of 30+ years.  My wife, Sue, loves to ride horses as I do so we have a lot of fun.  We have 4 daughters, 3 of which are married. We have 4 grandchildren, 2 of which we are now gaurdians and parents for.

I was born in New Mexico, raised some there but moved to West Virginia at 13 and have called that my home state for much longer than any other state.  I joined the U.S. Air Force after having challenges with getting the financing for college (its a long story) when I was 19.  I served our country from 1979 to 1984 and loved it!  I almost made a career of the Air Force.  From there, I lived in WV for a short time then moved to Boston area for 1-1/2 yrs until moving to Northern Virginia where I worked in the Washington DC area for 12 years.  In 1998, I got the opportunity to move to Colorado where we will probably live for the rest of our lives.  Colorado is an awesome state to live in!

Business.

For the last several years, I have been a “freelance” web designer.  For over a year now, I’ve been doing this full time along with the occasional IT or Computer job.  My company, Bills Web Biz, is growing into a great business opportunity.  Many businesses and organizations are finding it hard to find a “webmaster” they can trust and I have been able to take care of them and help them overcome the mistrust of those providing services for Internet-based and Computer-based technologies.

Officially: I do web site development and customization including creative design, recommendations and all associated technologies. I maintain my own business with the purpose to assist companies and organizations to market and advertise themselves on the Internet.  I love helping a business or organization to increase their business and communication with their customers and members.  It has become a passion for me!

My Specialties: Web Site Hosting, Custom Web Sites, HTML, PHP, MySQL, Javascript, Joomla CMS,Wordpress, Drupal, CS-Cart, Graphics, SEO (Search Engine Optimization), Google Adwords, Local Internet Advertising, Internet Technologies, Computers, Networking (and all technologies associated with it), LAN, WAN, WLAN, and much, much more.

I have had the rare privilege of working in technologies for over 30 years including Sattelite Communications, RF/Microwave Communications, Fiber Optics, Local Area Networks, Wide Area Networks, Wireless LAN, WLAN, WiFi, VoIP, DSL and more.

God Bless!
