Biography

I am a Senior Systems Engineer for the U.S. Navy, and I work on providing Department of Defense (DOD) customers with state-of-the-art Command, Control, Communications, Computers, and Intelligence (C4I) solutions.

I have a B.S. (1990) and a M.S. (1998) in Computer Science from San Diego State University (SDSU).

From 1985 until 1999, I was an Apple Macintosh user/developer/integrator. In 1999, I switched focus to Microsoft Windows (NT, Server, XP, Tablet PC, Vista, Windows 7-11, etc.) I am, however, not wholly Windows-centric, as I have several systems running Chrome OS, Ubuntu/Kali, Mac OS X, and a collection of Virtual Machines for security testing & research.

I also have a great deal of experience with mobile platforms like: Newton, Psion, Palm, Windows CE, Pocket PC, Windows Mobile, Android, and Apple iOS.

I have held technical positions as a: developer, database designer, systems analyst, systems integrator, systems engineer, systems architecture, and project manager.

I started podcasting in 2004 and created an audio production & consulting company called: AztecMedia.net in 2005. The following shows were produced by me: ChvrchesPodcast.com (@chvrchespodcast); ThePodcraft..com, TechNewsRadio.com (@technewsradio), JerseyBoysPodcast.com, and VeteranStories.us.

I'm also publishing periodically to AviationObserver.com and AirGappedNetworks.com.

On the personal side (@sholden), I am married and have three kids. We currently live in San Diego County in Southern California and worship at Christ Lutheran Church La Mesa.

You can reach me by phone at 619-631-4433.
