Hi there!

Since you took the time to come visit my website, I figured I'd tell you a little about me:


I originally moved to San Diego, California courtesy of the US Marine Corps and stayed here with my then fiancée, now wife. I am currently working as a software Quality Assurance Manager for a software company that produces an environmental compliance management tool for the Internet.


I have an Associates Degree in General Education. I am attending CSU San Marcos. My ultimate education goals include finishing a Bachelor's Degree in Business with a High Technology Management emphasis and maybe an eventual Masters.


My hobbies include Kempo (martial arts), working on computers, maintaining websites, and astronomy (surprise). I am currently in the process of building a mount for the 20" "Tominator" mirror that was given to me by the family of a fallen friend, Tom O'Hara. I'm also grinding a 10" Pyrex mirror blank for use in a telescope, but that project has stalled out for a while. I also use my camera to take photos of everything from family to astrophtotos to landscapes & cityscapes.

Drop me a line

That's it for me. For other family news, check out the Herzler Family News page. If you think of something that you'd like answered, let me know. I am open to your questions or input. Thanks for visiting! For a greeting, in my own words, click here for a Real Audio welcome file (~4kb).


In case you were interested, I'm a current member of the:
