languagesnine or ten years ago i became interested in spanish and began studying it. i now can say i speak spanish really pretty well. to achieve true fluency i think i'd probably need to spend a little time living in a spanish speaking country. spanish then led to portuguese and i also can read/write that fairly well and at least defend myself in conversation.
pasti went to highschool in springfield, illinois at springfield high. i studied e.e. at the u of i and was a rather unlikely frat rat at sigma nu. i started a family rather young, dropped out of school, and then later went back to the university in c.s., but got sucked in by the big money and high pressure schedules of technology jobs and the rest, shall we say, is history.
