Wow. Writing a BIO is harder than it looks, so I first read everyone’s BIO and compiled some basic tips:
1) If you can’t think of anything to say, talk about writing BIOs.
2) Say a few things about yourself, preferably something interesting, if you can’t think of something interesting, talk about a coworkers BIO (Witty humor is not required but is encouraged).
3) When you run out of things to say add a few pictures worth a 1000 words and fill the rest out with some Q&A.
Here we go…
I grew up in the heart of the Champlain Valley. After matriculating at the University of Vermont and CCV, I earned a degree (two in fact). I have an AAS in Website Design and Administration as well as a BA in Philosophy. This means I’m equally adept at modifying Cascading Style Sheets as I am in throwing someone down the black hole of epistemological skepticism. Like many at CPA Site Solutions I enjoy the outdoors and love to hike. I’ve actually backpacked the Long Trail end-to-end as a through hike. It was one of my greatest experiences and helped me to grow as a person and gave me confidence palpable to others. I also like to grow plants of all types. In our short summers I like to grow organic vegetables and recently have become interested in the use of native plants in the landscape. Indoors I like to grow epiphytes (plants that don’t grow in soil). I also have a pretty large planted aquarium complete with a C02 injection system. I can also be found at car shows across New England. A couple of my favorites are The British Invasion in Stowe, Vermont and Bav Auto’s Show N Shine in Portsmith, New Hampshire.
Favorite video games: Diablo II (waiting for 3!), Classic Mario Brothers games, bubble trouble and fishy flash games, and while not a video game I do enjoy a good game of SkipBo®!
Favorite TV shows: Mostly those without actors.
Scariest Moment: Being interrogated by Russian officials in a back room at the airport and having to navigate Moscow alone.
Favorite Color: Blue (Although the exact nature of color as a feature of the physical world is a matter of a complex and continuing philosophical debate).
