Asked for a short Bio... Perhaps I should add a bit about Bullshit Artist...

My name is TexasT's. I’m 58 years old (young!). I live on the southwest side in Houston, Texas, I am an unabashed Southern boy. A Texas transplant since the late 1970's. Middle aged and single (again!) with 3 grown children.

Interests are art, technology, music (all genres) reading, and learning new things. My current set of hobbies include photography, model railroading, a bit of cycling and all manner of tech type stuff...

I was raised in a military family, Dad was US Navy. We moved about every three and a half to four years when I was growing up. Bounced off both coasts and beyond before I was a teenager. I went to first grade at Pearl Harbor Elementary and 8th grade on the same base that Eisenhower used for his "Supreme Allied Headquarters" at High Wycombe at Buckinghamshire in England during WW II.

This instilled in me a desire to wander that has never waned. "Not All Those Who Wander are Lost" is very true in my case.

I started and finished High School (Class of '76) in Jacksonville, Fl. At 19 I had moved to Houston because that was "where the money was".

By the time I was 21 I was working for Shell. Started on a warehouse dock and by the end of 31 years there I was an IT Security Specialist working at One Shell Plaza. Shell helped me style myself into a kind of Jack of All Trades.

Warehouseman >> Shipping Clerk>>Hazardous Materials Disposal Specialist >> On-Contract Buyer >> Procurement Agent >> SAP Project Team member For 3 separate projects >> SAP Support Team for MM- SD -HR >> SAP Security Specialist.

That last couple of chapters found me sent all over the country and to Canada and Europe as well as the Far East for several Project Startups. I (sort of) retired in 2010. After my time there, I spent some time on my own (re)honing my Mac OS skills and then went to work as a Technical Support Tech at Comcast.

Also supplemented my income from time to time by doing various hardware and software installs and various upgrades, for a small customer base I built out of business associates, friends and acquaintances.

Technically proficient in the MS Windows area and MS Office (Word-Excel-Access-Powerpoint) suite as well as Applications within the Macintosh Realm.

I also have excellent Customer support and telephone skills. These were honed during time spent on the Global SAP Support group at Shell as well as Technical support (via telephone) at Comcast.


The man accused me of writing a dating site profile! Heh. Never even looked at one of those sites... Maybe I should... Dunno
