Hi there! It's me, Jake.

If I'm being honest, I created this page out of curiosity, just to see if I could do it, I had no expectation of people actually visiting it, but here we are.

That being said, I am...

  1. a tinkerer and mechanical thinker that loves to problem solve but also work with my hands
  2. interested in Linux, shell programming, all things computers, and the Web.
  3. humbled and blessed that you took time to visit my website.

Here is what I do in my free time

(what little free time I have)

A Few Facts About Me

Just to paint you a little picture of who I am

I entered this world over 40 years ago ( I will try to keep from revealing my true age). I am married and have 4 kids, 4 cats, and a dog.

I spent the majority of my life living in the Pacific Northwest (PNW) about 50 miles from the base of Mt. Rainier in Washington State. If you have never been, I recommend you go at least once, just to visit, it is gorgeous.

My family and I moved away from the PNW in 2017 and landed in Northwest Arkansas (NWA), long story, not the first place we would have chosen to live.

I have been an automotive technician for the past 25 years and reached the level of Master Diagnostic Technician (MDT) for Toyota.

I'm interested in people; who they are and how they think. I'm interested in computers, languages, computer languages and a few other things, too.

And Now A Few Facts About You

Lets see if I can paint a basic picture of who you are

Wait, What?! You're joking, right?
Of course I am...or am I

You are a great friend to those who know you. You put others above yourself.

You are thinking to yourself, he can't know I am in . Or can he?

All this time you thought that was secure, but now you are second guessing that and think... can Jake actually see me?

Let me put your mind at ease. I'm not watching you and I am just guessing when I say you are in .

Thanks for visiting, I hope you enjoyed learning a little about me. You're great.
