I was born on December 4, 1961 in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. In 1974, at age twelve, I moved to Littleton, Colorado where I attended Columbine High School. After graduation, I entered the University of Northern Colorado (UNC) as a 3 ½ year scholarship student in UNC’s AFROTC program. I completed the program as a distinguished graduate in 1983 and received my B.A. degree in Math that same year.
After college I served in the Air Force for 20 years. During that time, I finished M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in computer systems and computer science, respectively; supported our national war planning effort; and taught undergraduate- and graduate-level courses in computer science and simulation, and managed the computer systems at the Pentagon.
