Jon-about

Hi, I’m Jon Stacey. I’m an entrepreneur living in Colorado and this is my personal Web site.

Technology is my passion and has been since I was a kid. I have built computers, overclocked them, fixed them, and even broken them. I have had moments of coding brilliance and times of hair loss over software bugs. I started this blog to share my personal experiences with technology in the hopes that some of the odd things I discover or learn will be useful for others of like mind.

Background

I’m often asked why it takes me so long to answer the question “where are you from?” The reason is that I’m not exactly sure. Some days I’m from the small islands of Palau, other days I’m from Nebraska, or Colorado. I have never lived in a single location for very long.

I’m a U.S. citizen born in Lincoln Nebraska, but lived the first 12 years of my life overseas in Trinidad and Tobago and Palau. I moved to Colorado for High School and then ended up back in Lincoln Nebraska to get my degree in Computer Information Systems in 2010 and a Master’s in Business Administration in 2012. After graduating, I packed up and moved back to Colorado and started Nohilo.

My Gear

At home I scoot up to a 27″ iMac (mid-2010) as my primary workhorse. On the go, my trusty old 17″ MacBook Pro (mid-2007) is my loyal companion. Sadly, Apple doesn’t even make a 17″ laptop any more.

When I’m pretending to be a professional photographer I’m running around with a Nikon D5100 and my dad’s tripod [Cullmann Magic 2] that’s older than I am.

On the trails you’re likely to see me on a 2007 Novara Bonanza mountain bike which has served me well for over a thousand miles.
