About Me


That's me!my name is Uli. I was born in Ulm, Germany in 1971 and lived there until
I was 10 years old. I had just finished 4th Grade when my mom decided
1981 to move to the US with my sister and me. The first 4 years we lived
in Portland, Oregon were I went to Holy Redeemer (4th and 5th Grade) and
then switched to Ockley Green to spend 6th and 7th Grade there.

1985 we moved to Ridgefield, Washington, 10 miles north of Portland.
We had a small 5 acre farm with horses, cats and a dog. When we bought
the property, we noticed that there was about 20 inches of ash on the barn
roof. Well, no wonder! Mt. Saint Helens is not far away. You can see the
volcano to the north as if it were just across the street.

After finishing Clark College with an Associate Degree I moved back to Germany.
There I continued my studies and got a Bachelor equivilant. After working a
couple of years I continued my education (while working) to become an
IT Systems Manager. At the moment (2008) I am working on my MCSE
(Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer). I currently work in the pharma
industry in the IT field giving world wide second level support. Other
responsibilities include software distribution, patch management,
software development and setting software and hardware standards.
I love my job!

That's all for now. I'll post new information as they happen.
