Me My name is michael j talarczyk, and I've been playing with technology since 1978, when I was six years old. Since then, I've been a saxophone player, an audio/video technician, a film composer, a render farm wrangler, a deep tissue / shiatsu / craniosacral massage therapist, a help desk software creator, a martial artist, an Oracle DBA and data warehouse architect, and a co-founder of a profitable Internet startup. I currently work in systems architecture and invest in and advise internet startups on the Westside of Los Angeles in Santa Monica. I live in Marina del Rey with my wife and two cats, and I hope one day to find more time for tai chi.
