Randy began his professional career in Information Technology over twelve years ago, providing computer and network support as an on-site technician. In his spare time, he taught himself how to design web pages and develop web applications using HTML, CSS, ASP, and SQL. With those skills, he developed a number of websites including one for a local radio station, a state-wide attorney, the US headquarters for an international scooter company, a national ink/toner company, and the IT company he worked for. The web application for the IT company contained several tools that were used on a daily basis such as an inventory tracker, mileage tracker, work orders, contract management, and more. He would later make a mobile version of this web application when mobile devices became the norm, allowing technicians to have mobile access to the web apps they need to do their job.
Randy's interest in technology began when he was around twelve years old when he found himself taking electronics apart to see what was inside to learn how everything works. He enjoys dabbling in and learning many things. Not only is he an IT professional, but he's a self-taught guitar and piano player, a photographer, a videographer, a DJ, an amateur (HAM) radio operator, a radio communications geek, a sketcher, and a geocaching enthusiast. He regularly attends the Gulf Coast .NET Users Group meetings and SQL Saturday events. He's also a volunteer in the tech department at his church where he runs video cameras, the video switcher, computers, and lights. Growing up as a military brat, Randy has lived in Ohio, Texas, Hawaii, South Dakota, North Carolina, and California. He moved to the Florida panhandle in 1993 and currently resides in Destin with his wife Amanda, daughter Sara, son Ryan, and cat Kevin.
