About Me

My name is Mark, and I’m studying course Q62 toward a BSc (Honours) Computing & IT degree at Open University.

I grew up in Utah and moved to Southern California with my English wife.  We had our first son there, then moved to the south of England and had our second son.

I’m a high school drop-out, and have a career as a senior ICT technician and network engineer.

This blog was inspired by www.abscforme.co.uk and is for the same purpose: To document my journey to the same degree from the same institution.
