So, how did I get the name Beacon Deacon? Well in college, the mainframe used was a VAX/VMS 4000 (by DEC). Students used it to program, e-mail, post on bulletin boards, and do projects. I used to have discussions on the religion bulletin board at James Madison University. Beacon Deacon is a name I came up with, a handle for the VAX bulletin board posts. The verses in Scripture behind the name are John 1:5 and Matthew 5:16.
I attended James Madison University as an undergrad. I graduated with a Bachelor of Business Administration degree in Computer Information Systems with a concentration in Decision Support Systems. I was also involved in the Baptist Student Union.
I completed graduate school (Master of Arts in Counseling) at Eastern Mennonite University and began work as a counselor-therapist in June 1999. For more information about the Graduate Counseling Program at EMU, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information about psychology and counseling, see my Psychology and Counseling Links.
I later returned to my original field of Information Technology working at my alma mater James Madison University first as a Computing Support Analyst and later in my current role as a Web Developer.
