Geeks With Blogs
Blake Theiss

Hello! Welcome to my blog!  My name is Blake and this is my first blog post ever! I have been wanting to start a blog for the last couple of years but... well... you know how things go...  :)  I plan this blog to be used for different purposes: family stuff, fun staff, rants, venting, and of course computer programing and methodologies!

So let me tell you a little bit more about myself:  I'm a Missourian.  I have lived in Kansas City, Missouri most my life.  I went to University of Missouri-Rolla for my bachelors in computer engineering.  I have an open view on things and am also very practical.  I also like to discuss things and learn how other people think.

So here's a picture of me (Note all the coffee cups, soda, and orange juice... I'm a huge coffee fan!):


Here is my family (Heather and James):

The most important thing to me is my family.  Becoming a father and sugar-daddy :) changes so many things...  :) heheheheh... I'll reflect on this later...  But bottom line family is #1 priority for me.  I have so many experiences I want to share with Heather as well I have so many things I want to teach and show my son.  I want to be one of those dads that passes his son wisdom and knowledge through his own actions, anecdotes, and of course by spending time together!  I could definitely see a father and son computer programming business in the future! :)

I am a huge video game player.  I love role-playing based games like Balder's Gate II, KOTOR, Jade Empire, Mass Effect, Elder Scrolls.  I'll be blogging my top 10 video games in a later post.  What I like about Video Games is they make me not have to think that hard and I can kind of lose myself.  Whatever you have that does that for yourself do it and don't have any regrets!!!

I also love to read books although I am a bit picky.  I may be reading 3-5 books at a time and if a book loses me I don't ever read it again.  My favorite reading is Fantasy-based books by authors such as Terry Goodkind, Raymond E Fiest, R A Salvatore.  I'll be blogging on this as well.

In terms of programming.  I consider myself a solution architect specializing in custom .NET development and SharePoint.  At some point in the future I'll be blogging about technology and my thoughts!

I am currently working at AJI Software with Jeff Julian, John Alexander, and Jerod Crump.  I'm having a great time.  These guys share some of the same core beliefs about family and work that I do.  Its great to work with them.

So in conclusion I look forward to sharing more about myself, my world-view, and of course my family!  Shoot me a comment if you have any thoughts or questions!
