I am originally from Brooklyn Park, MN where I was raised by my parents Jerry and Nancy. My father is a boiler operator for the State of Minnesota in St. Paul, MN. My mother is a Media ESP at an Elementary School in Brooklyn Park. I also have a brother named Phillip who is attending Bethel University in Arden Hills, MN for a degree in Business with an emphasis in Marketing.

I graduated from Osseo Senior High in 2007. After high school, I went to Gustavus majoring in Computer Science and minoring in Theatre. While attending Gustavus as a student I worked as a Student Supervisor in the Theatre & Dance department scene shop. Working there granted me the opportunity to work on some aspect of every show the department put on through the 4 years I attended. I designed lights, assistant stage managed, and even acted when I was there.

While at Gustavus, I met my first girlfriend. Her name is Patricia. Yeah, I know we have the same name, how narcissistic. She graduated in the same class with a double major in Classics and Mathematics. She is now attending Notre Dame in South Bend, IN in the architecture program.

After graduation, I was looking for a job and I noticed that Gustavus had an opening. I figured I would apply to Gustavus for the second time in my life and I got accepted again.

I worked at Gustavus for 8 months and moved to IN to be with my girlfriend. I am now working at Saint Mary's College, Notre Dame, IN as the Assistant Director of Web Communications.

In my free time, I like to go shooting with my digital camera. I also enjoy to attend theatre and dance performances. I attempt to see all of the Gustavus Theatre and Dance shows, and am a season ticket holder at the Guthrie theater in Minneapolis, MN. I like to watch comedy shows on Netflix or Hulu+ (favorites being Arrested Development, Community and 30 Rock).

I gave up and did VirtualBox. This won't confuse the missus when she starts the computer either.

comment iMac Ubuntu 12.04 Dual Boot Live CD Hangs Bluetooth
Yeah, I think the bluetooth keyboard and mouse were being issues. I think the drivers for the bluetooth adapter are proprietary and the installer wouldn't use a closed source driver for the install.

comment How do I install Ubuntu on an iMac 27"?
I know this is an old post, but you can't use a wireless keyboard (the default for new iMacs). You need to get a plain old wired keyboard. The bluetooth daemon doesn't run until the desktop is loaded, so the loader fails because you don't have a keyboard.
