About The Author
I was born in 1966 in Windsor, Ontario, Canada and raised in nearby Toronto. I married my wife Robyn in 1990; we now live in southern Vermont with our three sons: Ryan (now 12), Matthew (9) and Evan (4).
I have had an interest in the field of computers ever since my early years, starting at the age of 14 when I received my first computer, an Apple ][ that was a gift from my parents. Since that time I have worked in various computer-related fields in hardware and software. In 1989 I obtained a Bachelor of Applied Science from the University of Waterloo, in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada. I completed my formal education in 1993 with two Masters degrees, in Management and in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS), from MIT.
After a brief conventional technical career, I created and published The PC Guide, an extensive online reference work on personal computers and in 1998 I decided to devote myself to my writing projects full time. The TCP/IP Guide was part of a larger networking project that I spent time on earlier this decade. I continue to work in the technical writing and editing field on various projects, for myself and other companies.
You may have noticed something missing here: no impressive listings of credentials. No, Im not a New York Times best-selling author; I havent been a professor at a prestigious Ivy League university for a quarter-century; neither am I a top executive at a Silicon Valley giant. In some ways, I am a student of technology, just like you are. And my experience over the years has shown me that many of the people who know the most about how technology works also have rather limited success in explaining what they know in a way that will allow me to understand it. My interests, and I believe my skills, lie not in being an expert, but an educator; in presenting complex information in a form that is sensible, digestible and fun to read.
When I am not workingall too rare these daysI spend time with my family and enjoy the peaceful quiet and natural beauty of the state of Vermont. I enjoy listening to many types of music, walking in the woods, hiking, and playing tennis. I am also an avid amateur photographer, with particular interests in nature and landscapes.
