I am a Computer Programmer/Analyst specializing in the CyberLife Enterprise System (with primary focus on Policy Administration). I am currently employed with Midland National Life Insurance (member of Sammons Financial Group) in Sioux Falls, South Dakota - relocated from Denver, Colorado. CyberLife is a mainframe-based application system administered by most of the top-25 Life Insurance companies across the nation and a few around the globe. Most projects I have been involved with can last several months to several years and can often cost millions of dollars for the full team effort involved. My primary CyberLife experience comes from a nearly 12-year work history with CSC in the Denver area (click here to view my resume). My primary experience is COBOL programming in a Mainframe environment with DB2/SQL and CICS. I also have experience with web design and e-commerce using Perl for our home-based, family-run business: S&R Favors (www.srfavors.com). I have developed our website in-house by heavily modifying a small shopping-cart program for credit card processing, store-front, keyword search engine optimization and back-office order handling.


I remain a Colorado Avalanche hockey fan, but don't follow as closely after our relocation to South Dakota. I'm also a science-fiction fan and greatly enjoy nearly all categories of movies. I do enjoy reading, although it usually involves non-fiction Biblical topics & discussions. Otherwise, I do enjoy reading books by the likes of Michael Crichton, Tom Clancy and John Grisham.

My wife, Reagan, and I were married in 2004 and she has been the largest blessing in my life. She has worked in accounting and is proud to be a Colorado native. I, having been raised in Albuquerque, New Mexico (and just outside in the small mountain town of Edgewood), had a strong desire to live in Colorado where I would eventually attend college (at Colorado Mesa University). I am happy to have had the opportunity to wind up living in Denver (and meet my wife) for nearly 15 years. After a short stint back in New Mexico and in Michigan, my wife and I are now adjusting to life in the small ("big") city of Sioux Falls, South Dakota. Although we really miss Colorado and our friends, we know our path has been led here and we are thankful for the blessings of a good job and an ever-growing home-based business (for which Reagan admirably administers the accounting and oversees the day-to-day aspects full-time). website statistics
