|I didn't have much time to do this page, but I wanted to get something online to let you guys know a bit about the person behind KPT Ollie. I started at MetaCreations on May 6, 1996 after trying to get employed by them ever since they moved to Santa Barbara. One day, I was cruising their web page and just had to take a peek at their Employment Opportunities page. I saw they were looking for somebody to do Online Tech Support, and I felt the job had been created just for me! Not only had I years of experience with MetaTools software and Macs in general, but I also was doing Technical Support for a local access provider and was already living in Santa Barbara. I applied via email, came in for an interview, and walked out with the job! I was happy, to say the least. It's now over three years later and I've transferred to Online Services as a Server Engineer. This means I get to play with server configuration and do a lot of Perl programming, which I love! The people are great here, my boss is supercool, and the work load is just enough to keep me busy for a full workday. Needless to say, I'm extremely happy in this company and my current position.|
|What? You want non-work-related info? Like there is any... Okay, well, I have a BA in Professional Photography from the Brooks Institute of Photography, though if I had to do it over again I'd definitely pick a major in Computer Science. But I'm not complaining - it's a great degree, and I do use the knowledge a bit with this job. I LOVE my motorcycle!!! I have a lot of great biker buddies that I ride with on Sundays, and it's one of my true passions. I also love Silly Putty and Sea Monkeys. In fact, Susan Barclay's Sea Monkey Worship Page is the funniest site I've ever seen!|
Well, how about some links? Okay, since you asked...
