There are several Chris Lamke’s out there. This Chris Lamke is a humanist, married father of three, lover of humans and other animals, former Army Infantry soldier and deputy sheriff, and social and economic progressive.
In my mid-twenties, I became dissatisfied (i.e. disillusioned) with the military and law enforcement life and wanted to learn more about the world and to work in computing. I realized I needed to go to college, so I studied computer science and liberal studies (e.g. philosophy) and left college with degrees in both. I now work several projects as a technical lead.
