I've worked in computer software my entire career (30+ years). When I began, the job positions were called computer programmer. Later we became known as software engineers or software developers. I started on IBM mainframes and followed the shrinking technology to PC/Mac and now to mobile (Android and Windows Phone). I worked at 2 large corporations, then at 4 startups. The first 3 startups all failed, and the 4th was acquired by Samsung where I am now working on a music app product.
I'm a pilot for a large fractional aviation company.
I am a mortgage underwriter for a community bank.
Manager for Bed Bath and Beyond (18 years). We don't fix phones there.

I doubt it is a surprise to anyone I own and operate Motoring Magic, a MINI specialty shop in Thousand Oaks, SoCal. Started working at a Chevy dealer in 1971 at age 17, moved to Porsce-Audi in 1975 and never looked back. Along the way I spent 2 years at a Harley Dealer for fun, owned an insurance adjusting deal for 10 years and an Airbag Service franchise for 12 years before Motoring Magic. The Airbag Service gig led me to partner in a collision shop (the most money I ever made AND the WORST business I was ever involved in-money is NOT everything) which brought me my 05 MCS and the rest is now history. I never wake up and don’t want to go to work!
I'm a pilot for an over night company. When it absolutely positively has to be there it may be on my plane. But my most important job is as a father to 4 great kids and husband to a wonderful wife.
