About me? Well, I was born in 1957 in Peoria, Illinois. I'm married to Christy (Ellsworth) Schurter. We just celebrated our 21st anniversary.

We have one daughter, Leah (Schurter) Morse married to a great guy (and not a bad dotNet programmer) Alex Morse.

My Career? A fascinating journey garnering a vast experience base to draw from in all of my activities. I have been:

  • Software Analyst (BPM focus)

  • Software Program Manager
  • Co-founder of Xfactory
  • Business Owner
  • Marketing Manager
  • Project Manager

  • Correctional Officer
  • UAW Journeyman Electrician

We live in the Dallas Metroplex - just North of the City of Dallas. We like the Dallas area. It is a fun place to live with plenty of interesting things to keep us busy in our spare time.

We have two minature schnauzers - Rufus and Cricket whom we love dearly.

We have made a lot of good friends here and enjoy meeting with our friends as often as possible. We frequently take advantage of the wealth of musical talent showcased in this area.

Schedule for release soon.
