RBird

After earning degrees in Applied Science, Computer Science, Mathematics and Philosophy I spent over a decade as a Systems Analyst for corporate America. Later I spent another decade in the commercial art industry where he helped start the computerized art revolution. After becoming self employed, I started a software training center in the St. Louis, Missouri area. After several years I began public speaking about computer technology, software and web design. I have presented over 30 topics to over 20,000 attendees worldwide. I have presented in all major cities of the United States, Australia, Canada, England, and the Middle East.
