Bio

I started learning about computers when my parents bought a Tandy 2000. The whole PC ran on a 3.5in floppy disk it was great. My first upgrade I bought was 4mb of ram for our second computer a Packard Bell. I saved up $200 just so I could play Doom. Over the years I taught myself to build my own computer in High School. Once graduated I opened a custom built pc shop with two other friends from school. We built about 7 or 8 before we decided not to work together. Since then I gained about 6 years experience in cellular devices at Alltel. At the same time I learned to repair cell phones as well. The last computer I built myself was over 10 years ago. But about 3 years ago I decided I wanted a new computer, even though I'm now married and have 3 kids, my desire to have a new PC was strong. To make this happen is going to be a little tough sense my current job at that time was in the oilpatch and that was slowing down till one day I was finally laid-off. I did not give up on my dream. So I began entering every pc giveaway I could. I won parts and pieces from all over but never enough to build a rig. Until last year I was blessed with an up to date pc that allowed me to do what I have since missed, playing with PCs and gaming. Also along the way I found Proclockers and their Summer Giveaway so joined the forums and stuck around. Until I was asked if I wanted to do reviews for the website. Now I doing what I also enjoy, testing out new gear and helping people make informed decisions about tech.
