Name: Steve Charles
Location: Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
I work at William Penn Association, a Fraternal Life Insurance and Annuities Company. I am in the MIS Department and make all of their websites. I primarily do database work and programming, but I also do a good bit of the networking. I also take photos at events whenever possible.
We (WPA) also own a place called Penn Scenic View where you can stay and rent lodges and cabins.
And, we also own a company called Computer Specialties Corporation.
Starting in 2001, I attended the University of Pittsburgh then transfered to Robert Morris University in the Fall of 2002. There I got my Bachelors Degree in Information Systems Management, with a concentration in Office Information Systems. While I was there I also got my N+ Certification.
A random fact about me:
I like to drink beer. I have tried hundreds of different kinds, but my alcohol of choice is Crown Royal. Nothing beats coming home from a rough day at work and having a Crown and Ginger Ale.
Tools of the Trade:
I currently take the majority of my photos with a Canon Digital Rebel XT. I have a few (5) lenses that I use with it. It’s a very nice Digital SLR, and I would highly recommend anything in that line. A program I couldn’t live without is Adobe Photoshop. I use it daily. It is by far my favorite design creation tool.
