Jettero Heller: About
Jettero Heller is one of my all-time favorite characters of any book I’ve read, and thus the namesake of this blog. Jettero Heller, the hero character in L. Ron Hubbard’s monumental Mission Earth series, was a “Combat Engineer” from the planet Voltar. He was a moral & upstanding, yet tremendously brilliant engineer who also was an amazing athlete, a dedicated husband, and was on a mission to save the world.
All told, I think he’s a pretty decent role model in most respects, which is why I chose his for the namesake of this blog – my personal space for technical discussion, and other various attempts to save the world.
As you may guess from my posts, I am a Scientologist. I live in Washington, DC, though I’ve been all over. When someone asks me where I’m from, I just say, “The United States” as I’ve called both coasts home for long stretches of time, living in Oregon, New England, LA, the midwest, etc.
I’m a network individual, currently making my living as a Linux Network Engineer, though I have passions as well in Web Analytics, SEO, web development, technical project management and other fields.
As for sports, I really like soccer, basketball and mountain biking as my tops. I’ve ridden my bike across Oregon, and up and down Crater Lake, probably my favourite ride ever.
