Biography

General Info

My name is Jason Bock. I was born on 03.09.1971 (which makes me 46 years old), and I was married on 09.20.1997 to Elizabeth Myers:

Liz and I in Atlanta, 2004

We have two sons, Hayden and Ryan, and we have two cats, Tweak and Mittens. I'm 5' 11'', 225 pounds and I have big feet (you know what they say about guys with big feet ... they're great guitar players. I know, I don't understand the analogy either ...)

Education

I grew up in the wild and wacky town of Oostburg, WI - consequentially, I got my high school diploma at Oostburg High School. After considering an attempt at becoming a music star (which resulted in a good-natured intellectual slap in the head from my parents), I realized that the world of music does not lead to a steady paycheck unless you have connections and/or you're extremely good. Therefore, I decided to attend Marquette University. I must have enjoyed it so much (or I just didn't want to deal with the real world for a while - take your pick), I got a bachelors and masters degree in electrical engineering.

Work Experience

I'm currently employeed by Magenic - I've been there since Nov. 2000. Feel free to hop around my site (especially the resources page) for more details on my technical experience and achievements.

Interests

My main interest are music, reading, software development, bicycling, and golf.
