A little about me...

I guess you could call me a content creator, but in my eyes I’m just a bored dude with a lot of interests and hobbies. Some times I feel froggy and get creative, so I make a video; some times I just want to sit, relax and play a video game, and other times I want to go fast and realize the go-fast parts aren’t yet on my car.  I’m a pretty complex dude with to much to do and not enough time to do it. Anyways, welcome to my website and enjoy the little glimpse into to my head and my life. 

...and things that interest me.

This all started because of my interests, and believe me, I have A LOT of them. This site and social accounts, more than anything else, are dedicated to them, so why not share a few of and give some backstory; Give you a peak into my brain, my past, and what makes me tick.

This one is pretty general, but it’s a great place to start. Technology has always interested me in one shape or form. Dating back well into the early 90’s, I’ve always been infatuated with electronics and technology. From fixing broken remote control cars,  exploring the world of audio production, video production, and computers in general. I largely have my family to thank for providing the foundation, no matter how small it may have been.
This interest has since grown into a career of the last 10 years in IT and the formation of my business and branched into numerous other hobbies.

My baby for the last few years; MyTechLiving, LLC. It’s gone through many changes, rewrites, reorganizations, change of service types, etc. It is finally falling into place and is turning into something I am proud of. While it’s still not necessarily profitable, it does pay it’s own bills and has endless growth potential for the near future.

This one is a bit of a newcomer to the mix since I didn’t get into cars until the age of 18 or so. This one started with my first car, a 1984 BMW 533i. I was young, didn’t know what I was doing, but learned a lot about cars. After some electrical gremlins, I decided to get Car Number 2; a Toyota Spyder MR2. I wanted something sporty and fun, and this was it. GAME OVER for my bank account. This was about the time the finances opened and the parts started flowing. Skip ahead a few years and the MR2 began to get a bit long in the tooth, so I needed something else… Enter the BMW 135i. This one brought the need for “Mo Powa Baby”… Sorry not sorry. After a while I had to trade my baby for a more suitable car for kids, but I still had an MR2 so not all was lost. 
I’ll end the story here, but rest assured cars are one passion I will have for the rest of my life.

Much like photography, I got into video with the birth of my kids and kinda went with it. With that said, this one goes back to the early 2000’s. As a way to exercise my creative freedom and wow the teachers and classmates, I would create videos in place of powerpoints, etc. for projects. Starting with Sony Vegas, I began my journey of video production, only to pick it back up almost 10 years later for the likes of YouTube and paying clients. Now it’s a hobby and something I enjoy on almost a daily basis. 

This is probably my second longest hobby, or interest; I don’t remember the first time I went fishing, but I can assure you it was around the time, if not before I started to walk. Obviously I wasn’t pulling in any fish at that point, but the interest has stuck around since. My father has been an avid fly fisherman for more than 50 years(i’m estimating here). I was formally introduced to fly fishing in my pre-teen years(10 or 11) and started to truly enjoy it in my early teenage years. Throughout my teens I fished any number of rivers, lakes and ponds across Maryland, Virginia and West Virginia. My dad and I were predominantly trout fishermen, and to this day some of my most fond memories are doing that with him. My favorite three rivers, which were our regulars, were the Savage River(Upper and lower, but the upper was a favorite in summer) in West Virginia, the North Branch, Potomac River in Maryland/West Virginia, and the Gunpowder River in Maryland. My father, in fact, has since purchased a house a short drive from a favorite location called Blue Hole in the North Branch.
I don’t get out to the river often enough now’a’days, so I’ve transitioned to fly fishing whatever and whenever I can; Thankfully, I have been lucky enough to have direct freshwater access at my current and previous house. I’m obviously not catching the trout of my past, but bass, perch, crappie, bluegill(sunfish) and catfish somewhat fill that void. 

In classic millennial fashion, I have to include video games. Another early entrance into my life with the likes of Nintendo, Super Nintendo, Gameboy, Nintendo 64, Playstation, Gameboy Advanced, XBox, Playstation 3, PSP, XBox 360, and most recently the PS4, but I digress? I’ve spent countless hours over the years sitting in front of the TV screen with my poison mainly being Battlefield and Minecraft… Lots of minecraft. and the occasional COD, but Minecraft when I just want something simple, slow, but enjoyable to play at the end of a long day.

This one is quick and simple; At the birth of my kids I took up photography and fell in love. Since then I started a successful photography business with my wife and have captured so many memories of my friends, family and acquaintances. 

Let me just spitball a few things that I do, but wish I could do more:

Audio production – I started using FL Studio in 2003 and have owned it since. I’ve owned multiple keyboards, including a Synth, multiple drum machines, and a sampler or two. I’ve since thinned the heard and only have my turntable, mixer and a couple dozen vinyl records for samples, otherwise everything is DAW based.

Kiteboarding – I started kiteboarding in 2013 and wish I could spend more time on the water; unfortunately both of my kites need to be repaired.

Hot Peppers – I have grown hot and superhot peppers every summer for the last few years. I don’t know why I got hooked on them, but I just did. This year(2020) I am growing Spicy Thai peppers which I’ve grown for the last four years and are a personal favorite, Jalapenos, Sweet bananas, and 7 Pot Bubblegums. As of typing this, I have 11 plants that have germinated so far with another 10 or 12 to go. 

Entrepreneurship – I wish I had the time and money to spend as a serial entrepreneur. I love building and being a part of businesses and wish I could dedicate more time to this.

Mazda Android Auto

Lets be real, Most of you are here for Android Auto; You want to know how to install it, how to uninstall it, why it’s not working, Blah, Blah Blah! I don’t blame you, so I’ll just give you what you want!

In an attempt to answer some more questions, and perhaps drum up some business for my company...

MyTechLiving, LLC

I started my business, MyTechLiving, LLC in 2017 with no real goal in mind other than wanting to be a business owner. Since then, it’s grown and shrunk in size and employees and has developed into what it is today. 

MyTechLiving, LLC is focused on providing small businesses, creators, and home users the hardware and software necessary to make their lives easier, at the lowest rates. We have hand picked very specific products and vendors to work with, and only carry what we trust and believe in. I use the very products we sell, and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
