I'm a Computer Consultant. I work in the Department of Surgery at the University of Wisconsin (Madison). I have worked in this department since early 1987, inititally as an Assistant Researcher. I have a B.S. from Indiana Wesleyan University (1984) and an M.S. from Iowa State University (1986).
I'm a Vreugdenhil. The Vreugdenhil name is Dutch. My grandfather immigrated as a young boy to the US in the early 1900's with his family.
I'm a camera and photography buff. My photographic interests involve landscape photography and classic Leica cameras, lenses and accessories. I am also a member of the Leica Historical Society of America. I am currently using a Leica D-Lux 4 and a Sony α6300 with several lenses for most of my photography.
I love riding my motorcycle. It is stress relief. I currently ride a 2012 H-D Sportster XL1200C.
I'm a fan of Sierra Leone. I grew up in Sierra Leone between 1965 and 1976. I follow Sierra Leone news and I collect Sierra Leone stamps. I was able to go back to visit in 1994.
I am a Christ follower, a husband and a father.
