Scott is a writer, photographer and a guy who just loves this stuff. He’s been at home in front of a computer for more years than he cares to remember (OK, 38) and is now making amends for years of many mistakes noted in the De-constructing computer guy articles (part 2) on T-Nation.

Stalkers may wish to track his every move via Twitter; everyone else is cordially invited to hop over to his online home. Enjoy.
