Personal:

I am married and have no children. My wife and I have been dating since 1975 and have been married fifteen years. I am a non-smoker and only occasionally drink any alcohol.

 My wife and I are originally from the Columbus, Ohio area. But have lived in several different communities and regions in Ohio. I am not opposed to relocation for the right position.

 I feel my greatest assets are maturity, organization, and above all, common sense.

 I am very interested in home/business computer systems. I completely rebuild my own system at least once every three months. I am also a computer parts reseller and do repair of computers and networks.  I maintain my own Internet domain at http://www.alexfish.com. You can find out more about me at that site.

I am very skilled at hi-tech video and audio. I have a multi-track audio recording studio. I use one of my multimedia computer systems to digitally record and compose music.  I also have a 16-track digital multi-track studio. I create audio CD's of my music with the equipment that I own. I play several musical instruments and write and record my own songs. Some of my music can be heard at http://www.mp3.com/alexfish.
