Full Biography

Semi underemployed IT pro who is now in the top 500 (that and 7 bucks at Starbucks will get me a cup of caffeine).

Advice to the young and foolish >>>> GET OUT OF I.T. NOW!

To paraphrase the BORG,you will be OUTSOURCED .
You are an easily replaceable commodity that corporations could care less about.

Biotech and truck driving are better bets than this piece of garbage referred to as IT.

Best piece of advice I can give:

GET OUT OF I.T. NOW!
