About Me

Born in Pascagoula, Mississippi in 1975, I moved to the DFW Metroplex in Texas in 1978. I lived in the Dallas area basically until 2004, when I moved to Panama City, Florida. I got my first computer — an IBM XT clone running DOS 2.2 — in 1987. I was an avid BBSer until we got Internet access in 1994. I designed my first webpage in 1995, bought my first domain in 1996, and by 1997 was designing websites for others. Now I own my own web design and hosting company, PanamaCityPC. But don’t be fooled by the name, I offer services globally.

I’ve been happily married to Rachel Eiland-Hall since May 2000. <3

I enjoy many things related to computers, such as helpdesk and website design and hosting. I’m definitely a computer geek, and I love helping others discover the power and joy of computing. I currently use Linux (Xubuntu) for my main desktop computer, and CentOS for my server; but I was previously a Windows enthusiast, and I like Mac as well. I believe in using the right tool for the job that someone’s most comfortable with.

One of my major hobbies is theatre. I’ve been involved in approximately 50 productions; from acting to sound design to assistant directing. I’m currently serving on the Board of Directors for Kaleidoscope Theatre in Lynn Haven, Florida.
