About this site

Welcome to my site. Its purpose is to allow friends and family to view online photographs and genealogical pedigree charts.

My Living

I'm in my late thirties and thoroughly enjoy technology. I work as an Information Technology Manager for a private firm with 300+ desk top users. We have several servers running Red Hat Enterprise Linux and Windows and more T1 lines then I care to think about at the moment. I have worked in the IT field for 12+ years and have had the opportunity to work with some brilliant minds during that time. Of course, I can not pass up this opportunity to plug Red Hat Linux and Open Source Code Writers. Sorry Microsoft, but I've witnessed Linux boxes that were up for several years straight without a single reboot required.

Photography

I know longer shoot photography. I enjoyed shooting night life, urban, people and of course, my lovely daughter Abigail.

Family Tree

I have begun gathering genealogical information from the different sides of my family. My grandmother, Avonelle (from my mother's side) gave me some aged hand-written charts and books tracing her side family history back to Francis Cooke of the Mayflower Compact. Additionally, my father, Thomas, presented me with a copy of some research he had done in the early 1980's. I was happy to learn we had a state senator, doctor, reverend, and my personal favorite - a blacksmith, on this side of family fence.
