To quickly summarize:

I’m born and raised in Seattle, and originally worked in the music biz. I worked as a mobile DJ, managed record stores, worked at record labels, wrote for a hip hop magazine and co-hosted a radio show.

I got into the IT business in 1996 and became a tester in 2001. Since 2001, I’ve held positions as Tester, QA Lead, QA Manager and more recently QA Engineer, which is why I created this blog.

In my free time, I volunteer time to raise awareness and funds for the cure of lung cancer, as four of my family members have perished from this disease.
