Mike McGann learned how to program like most other kids did in the 80s–by reading the instruction manual that came with the family computer. He started on the TI-994/A and moved to the Commodore 128 before entering the PC world with a Kaypro IBM clone. Mike has over twenty five years of professional programming experience in various fields such as Earth science, telecommunications, maritime domain awareness, and health care. When he is not behind a computer screen he can usually be found in front of a pinball machine. He is a proud owner of a 1993 Judge Dredd pinball machine and is the current Addams Family grand champion at Crabtowne in Glen Burnie, Maryland.
