I am not left handed.
I was born a southern peach to the Burger Family while my Dad was posted at Fort Benning, GA with the US Army. As a family, we were transferred to Southwestern Turkey for three years. During this time, I started school–at home. When my Dad retired from the service, and we returned stateside to New York’s Greater Binghamton, where my home education continued until 8th Grade. At that time, I started attending a Christian school in the area. I played soccer and basketball all through high-school, as well as participated in the traveling choir. It was through sports and choir that I met some of my best friends and future wife.
I proceeded to attend college, attaining a B.S. in Electrical Engineering Technology. While studying in central New York, I developed an interest in web design. After graduating, I landed a job working for an aviation simulation company. Building training devices for militaries all over the world, I developed a love for systems engineering and integration. Eventually, I transitioned to building commercial and military avionics.
In the next few years, I hope to start studying for a M.Eng in systems engineering. I intend to use my education professionally, but also to participate in short-term mission trips, where engineers evaluate and design buildings and infrastructure for missionaries and orphanages in the world’s desperate places.
In my spare time, I enjoy many hobbies, including (not limited to) cycling, motorcycling, designing web-based solutions, playing soccer, listening to music, watching movies, learning about new technologies, and salivating over German cars (VW/Audi, BMW, Porsche, etc.). I do not like artificially flavored banana candies, and wish that people would learn to use their turn signals properly.
In early 2008, I married a very special, beautiful woman, Elizabeth. We had a small wedding ceremony at Howe Caverns. With marriage came a crazy cat, Monte. We also have adopted into our family a dog, Ruby, and a kitten, Jade. Elizabeth and I enjoy spending our time traveling, worshiping, walking, eating, and working on our new home.
Originally intended as a business brand, Solution Three has become more like a digital playground for a few of my projects. Never having officially launched the brand, I have decided to embrace the destiny it seems to have been called to—a melting pot of various facets of my life.
