While working for an ISP in Maine as a Unix Systems Administrator he taught himself PERL and has since taught himself VB.Net, PHP, ASP, and other similar programming languages. Spending the majority of his career working as a systems admin has allowed him the flexibility of maintaining various servers, learning new services and technologies, and developing his programming skills.
