Why a duck?

Who am I?

I'm a husband and a father. I'm a son and a brother. I'm a veteran and an engineer.

I can create with wood, metal, electronics, and other things. I am partial to fixing things myself. I used to blow up reality for a living. I take apart and improve nearly anything I can get my hands on.

I work in the telecommunications industry for a "large Internet equipment manufacturer." Guess away. I'm good at networking and I'm a fair SysAdmin as well. I know business and technology. I can explain complex systems to anyone. I learn quickly. I can make you smile.

My friends define me well. I love them all.

I know the difference between leadership and management. I give the benefit of the doubt. I'll bite when cornered. I believe in personal responsibility and live that way.

I'm responsible for what I am. I'm proud of that.

My name is Lou. Welcome to my small corner of the web.
