I am a father of three beautiful kids, and I am married to my beautiful wife of 20 years. Throughout my professional career, I've held many technology related jobs which have enabled me to grow my technical skills further than I could possibly have imaged or hoped for. Despite how far I've come, I can't help but feel that I'm just at the tip of the iceberg. I"m blessed to have my dream job, and I hope to never quite learning how to improve myself and my skill set. Since I was a young boy, I was always interested in becoming a software developer, and now that I'm here I know that I made the right choice.
I am currently employed by Six Flags Entertainment Corp as the Sr. Enterprise Architect. I can honestly say that I feel like I've got the greatest job on earth. I actually worked at the park when I was a teenager (as did most kids at that time because it was the thing to do). I quickly realized that Six Flags was more than just a job. It was something I was really passionate about. In fact, it's where I met my wife, and most of my current friends. For that reason, when the opportunity to come back to Six Flags doing what I love, I jumped at the chance. We have a great team, and have built a very nice enterprise solution on the Microsoft Technology Stack. We are constantly improving our software to take advantage of current best practices, and to improve the technology we use so that guests have a more pleasant experience.
So aside from my family, my job, and my passion for technology and coding, I am passionate about coffee. Although both my wife and my doctor think 2-3 pots per day is bad, at least I drink it black. :-) Hey, it's my one vice, and besides, what do they know?
Finally, why "Llaslo"? Well, it all started with the 1985 Val Kilmer movie "Real Genius". Not coincidentally, this is a movie about a bunch of incredibly intelligent geeks in college. There is a strange guy who lives in one of their closets, and I just liked his style. His name was Lazlo Hollyfeld. I always thought it would be cool to have that name, but I had to make it my own so I changed the spelling to be "Llaslo".
