Hometown:
Milwaukee, Wisconsin
About Me:
John is now in Southern California-bring on all the IT Contracts

I have worked in environments ranging from Technical Support and
Help Desk Call Centers to being in the field training Technicians.
I have performed onsite Installations, Repairs, Removals, Upgrades
as well as Training. My career has taken me into the Classroom, the
Boardroom, the Retail environment as well as the Office-each area
requiring a multitude of technical skillsets, common sense and
personal savvy in order to reach multiple goals which is more than
satisfying to everyone involved.

I cannot get the Technical out of me, but I can certainly apply my
Technical in an environment that is healthy to me as well as more
environmentally friendly. I forgot how to live, I forgot how to
become one with my surroundings that is not of monitors and office
furniture....and I would like to be reminded once again.

If you're a Techie or want to learn how
to use Technology in your travels towards
a better experience, throw some banter

Clicking this text will open the doors to who I am and what I
represent-be prepared



John is heading West.....
......I don't know why and I don't know where. All I have wanted
was to fit in, to contribute, to be accepted. I have tried in so
many ways to figure out this life on my own-and I just can't make
sense of so many things. I'm heading out of Shreveport, Louisiana
either Sunday or Monday and I haven't a clue where I'm going-but
I do know I'm heading West. I have no idea why, it's just a feeling
....like having gas :)


I do know this place called Shreveport is nothing but filth and the
lack of care and compassion for anything and anyone here is too much
for me to stay.


Oh yes, how do you get fired from a position as Technical Trainer-for being 'too technical'?
That one really has me in a downward spiral still-and just might
change my entire outlook on everything...see how the little things
can make such a dramatic impact.


This 'focus on me' thing is still too difficult for me to grasp-it
has never been about me. I truly have tried-I don't communicate
with anyone, I observe the life I'm a part of and just focus on me
and only me-never trying to mess it up by including a woman into
the equation(no offense)..... Guess what-I still can't figure it out
...and I certainly to this day would never try to include those pigs
known as men into my life.


So what is the answer? So what is the equation? Whatever! I will

now take who I am and what I represent and head West-I will venture
to an open area of the desert where there are no people and no-anything
.....lay down in the hot sun-and take a nap for a while.


....and when I wake up everything will be different?
....and when I wake up everything will be better?
....and when I wake up...........?


Wish me luck.....

I have taken 3 CoolWorks widgets and stacked them

vertically for posting on pages-below is how these would

appear. I have posted the code in a text file for downloading

at the link below. I will be available to assist in editing for

your pages as needed-especially for the second widget :).



Enjoy
