This is my about me page. Here you will find out a little bit more about me and what drives the madness behind 4twozero.com.

This is my story:

I am currently 19 years old. I will be 20 in a few days. I live in Aurora, Colorado. A suburb of Denver. I came out here after graduating High School in 2003. I wanted to get away from my hometown Waynesboro, PA. So I got out of there as soon as I could. I started school in September of 2003 at ITT Technical Institute. I now have one more class to go and I'll have an Associates Degree in Computer Networking Systems.

When I came out to CO, I was fresh out of High School. I didn't really know what real life was. I grew up quite fast, seemed fast to me anyway. I got a full time job and went to school. After about a year of working at Rite Aid; I got a job as a Help Desk associate at IBM. I had to work 4 10 hour days and I had to drive an Hour to and from work. I did that for almost a year. I was 15 days shorts of my one year anniversary. I now work at a company called ViaSync. My job title is Network Engineer. I can't really say strictly that's what I do. Basically we are IT support for anything under the sun. I have learned more in the month that I've worked there then I did the entire time I worked at IBM and through most of my school.

I am now a few weeks away from graduating with a degree and I have a big decision as to continue my education, go home, and stay in Denver, many choices. I'm not really going into all that. You'll just have to read my blog to see the decisions I make.

I have a wonderful red head girlfriend back home. I've known the girl since I was 15. We met when she was a freshman and I was a sophomore. I met her in Match class. I still remember the day I asked her to be my girlfriend, it was April 13th; Friday the 13th. I never really though her parents cared much for me. I turned out to be right. I wrote something stupid in her yearbook, her parents read it and said we could no longer see each other, end of story right? Wrong, all throughout high school we saw each other off and on, but it never worked out. I only was able to truly be with her after she turned 18. We would talk on the phone, her parents eventually found out and it seemed everything turned out alright. We (her parents and I) get along now.

My high school days were the best times of my life, although I didn't know it at the time; they turned out to be the best years of my life. I remember my freshman year; I was really concerned with what everyone thought. I played baseball and met a lot of people through that. I had a friend named Brock that left town the year before that. He came back, all skinny and shit, and that's when things got crazy.

I played baseball for Waynesboro Area High School my 9th and 10th grade year. I didn't get much playing time when I was a freshman. When I was a sophomore every time I turned around they were giving me the ball and asking me to get them out of a situation some other pitcher had got them into. By the way, I was a pitcher. I had some brilliant games my 10th grade year. I also played basketball that year too. Again, I didn't get much playing time but I still played.

My 11th grade year was full of disappointments sports wise. I got cut from both baseball and basketball. So in the sprint instead of playing baseball I threw Javelin for the track team. I turned out to be pretty good. My best throw was 155' 10" not to bad for only throwing for 2 years. It turned out to be one of my favorite things to do and I'm glad I got cut from the baseball team now that I look back on it.

So when Brock came back from Rockville, all kinda shit hit the fan, I started hanging out with him more and I met on of my best friends Ben Stephey, Stephey is fighting for our country now.  We had some great times back in high school. I definitely won't forget them.

Now, I guess you can say I'm all grown up and things aren't the same they were back in HS.

I want to give a shout out and thanks for all my friends and family: Dad, Mom, Casey, Stephey, Brock, Adam, Eric, Ricky, Willy, Erin, Liz, Shannon, and all my other friends. Thanks guys for everything.
