Born and raised in the small town of Oologah, Oklahoma, JJ has always been fascinated with taking things apart to understand how they work. As a kid, he would work on the family computer and attempt to put it back together. Sadly, that computer never did work again. But this initial experience with technology prompted him on a lifelong pursuit to understand and build computers. He grew out of working on his family’s old computer and studied MIS at Oklahoma State University.
In his free time, JJ keeps things simple by playing video games, watching movies and listening to music. When he isn't working on computers or relaxing by a fire pit, he's busy fixing up his grandparents’ old place.
