I run computer servers, write light computer code for programs, build and update websites, repair electronics, build and repair computer systems on both the hardware and software level, install / update security surveilance systems, install / update networking telecommunication systems (previously a contractor), and I tinker with various electronics. I also enjoy the occasional woodworking projects, riding the open road on my Harley, and shooting targets with my firearms. Like many, I also enjoy the occasional streaming TV or movie, and the video gaming industry (hand-eye coordination!). Majority of my hobbies are at home, and I rarely travel unless required to.
