My name is Nate, and I am a husband, father, and manager of a team of software developers. My wife and daughter are the lights of my life. I live in Sterling, a town in eastern Loudoun Country, Virginia.
I have been in the tech industry since I graduated from college in 1997. I have worn many hats: system administrator, software developer, software architect, SRE, and now manager. Mostly I have worked in the telecommunications sector, for such companies as MCI, AOL, and Comcast.
I enjoy playing games - both board games and role playing games.
