|Most Embarassing moment||My senior year in High School I was First Chair trumpet in the marching band. This means I get to play lots of solos to showcase my supposed "talent." Our marching band played in a competition at a bigger school an hour away. Well, I knew a girl I really, really liked was in the audience, and I was nervous thinking about impressing her. We were doing a Phantom of the Opera theme for our show, and I had a big solo throughout the whole middle of "Music of the Night." I stepped out from the rest of the trumpets, who receded, leaving me stranded alone in the middle of the 40 yard line, 10 yards from the nearest band member. I thought about impressing that girl, then I got so nervous I TOTALLY forgot every note of my solo except for the first note, and that was because I had held the valves down as I got into position on the field.
Needless to say I sounded like a wounded duck, playing any old note that came to mind. In the breaks between notes I could hear the laughter of people in the crowd--completely humiliating. Well, luckily the girl I wanted to impress wasn't in the bleachers, but she had heard about my little solo mishap: it was the hot story at the band competition that day.
Right now we live in Omaha in a nice three-bedroom house. My main projects right now are perfecting a home network/intranet that I'm setting up, and learning to be a handyman. Melinda used to teach Algebra and Geometry at Ralston High School--but now she's a full-time stay-at-home mom for our three kids. I'm a Programmer/Web Developer at Farm Credit Services of America here in Omaha. It's a fun job, and I love the people here. I'm working primarily with .NET 2.0 technologies, both ASP.NET and Windows Forms.
On the side, I also work with Open Source technologies: FreeBSD, mySQL, PostgreSQL, Linux, Ruby on Rails, Perl, and PHP. If you have a cool project for me, email me at the address above.
Our family currently attends Grace Baptist Church in Papillion. We teach Sunday School for the three year olds. It keeps you young! Pastor Lou Sloger is hands down the best pastor in Omaha. The church is full of great people and it has a healthy love of the Scriptures.
Our kids, Jonah (3/19/2003), Hannah (3/8/2005), and Isaac (7/7/2007) are our pride and joy. You can see pictures of them in the photo gallery.
