My name is Ed Giese. Can you guess what 'Giese' rhymes with??
My whole professional career has been involved in technology and communicating with people.
My educational background is engineering, and I spent nearly all my early professional career in computer work, from single-board eight-bit processors all the way up to Fidelity Investments' mainframe/client-server systems.
God led me into the ministry about 10 years ago, and while I've been incredibly blessed by the experience -- and learned a boatload about working with people -- I am back to my first love, computers.
We live in interesting times. Much is changing that has been fixed for centuries. But I feel rooted in the few eternals that really matter: love for family, hope for the future, and faith in God.
