I lived in Federal Way, WA until the winter of sixth grade. I went to Adelaide Elementary which is near Lakota Jr High. In sixth grade I moved to Buckley, WA where my parents bought five acres. I finished sixth grade in Elk Ridge Elementary, then went to White River Middle School and White River High School (such creative names we've got).
After high school I started working at PACCAR International (PACCINT) and went to Seattle University for a computer science degree. I worked at PACCINT for 2 years and 9 months or so, when I was laid off. I then spent some time unemployed, worked at a fast food place called Dick's drive in, then worked over the summer for PACCAR Parts.
