I am a proud father of a seven year old daughter and have been married for 15 years. I am also a sysadmin and developer at The University of North Carolina at Charlotte. I lead a great team who supports end users, Mac and Windows desktops and servers, 35+ Drupal web sites and web applications, and various departmental applications for various departments.

I serve at Rocky River Church in the band (drums, sax and keys), running sound and helping out with the IT/Web Team.

I am a Geek. I love God.

I was escorted into the world of computing when my parents purchased a Commodore Vic20 in or around 1982. Typically quite frugal, my father understood the power of computers (at least for his kids, he still won't mess with them) and upped the antie by purchasing an Apple IIc for me in 1984.

I became interested in static HTML in '97 and a few years later became a big fan of WYSIWYG editors (GoLive and Dreamweaver) after using them for several employers as well as freelance work. As the web developed it became clear that I needed additional functionality and I started investigating open source web frameworks. Drupal made the most sense to me and since then I've become active in the Chicago Drupal community as an attendee of the Chicago Drupal Meetup Group and an Assistant Organizer of the Fox Valley Drupal Meetup Group. I run GoGrow.org and build Drupal sites for churches and other Christian ministries.

I'm married and have three small children. We attend and volunteer at a Vineyard church here in Aurora. I am quite interested in how church and tech can be better integrated.

I've been a computer hobbyist since learning BASIC from the kid who sat next to me in ninth grade French class. With 20 years as an IT professional, I currently work as a full-time contractor at Henry Ford Community College in Dearborn, Michigan. My tasks include network and Linux server administration, development and administration in the college ERP system, and management of several websites. Given my choice, I'd play with VMware and Drupal all day.

I'm also the volunteer head of the sound and lighting team at Cornerstone Church in Highland, Michigan, where I also dabble in network consulting and manage our Drupal websites.

I'm a missionary and a geek. I desire to inspire the next generation of missionaries by facilitating personal relationships with current missionaries. A significant piece of this puzzle is the technology of communication, but I don't believe that a personal relationship can be built without a solid understanding of the need for face-to-face and hand-to-shoulder interaction. We are beginning to replace the need for physical presence to communicate visually, but the power of touch in a strong relationship is huge and can not be replaced on the Internet.

My life on the web is summarized at About.me/Josiah.

I was born in 1982, so computers have "grown up" with me.
I studied Computing at the University of Portsmouth, and went to full time youth work with Solent Youth for Christ for three years. After that I worked for a financial institution, and from there moved on the the Youth With a Mission "Discipleship Training School" course.
Now I work for a company with provides Hosted Exchange accounts (and other technical things, such as web hosting and Hosted CRM accounts). I am in the "Provisioning" team, actually setting up the accounts.

I got married in October 2009.

Santa Maria,

Been interested in computers since I can remember my dad getting a Commodore 64. I lack the formal training but I am always willing to learn all things geeky. I attend a small church (15 people or so) and started getting involved in trying to improve their website, Mastering the Bible. The Lord has blessed me with an amazing wife and daughter who help keep me sane. I work as a government employee as a means to pay the bills but seeing how the Lord uses technology and the fruit that comes from that is what is truly rewarding to me. As ministries expand on the WWW, countless more lives are being changed and transformed by His spirit. What a blessing that is.
