Roger Redman

About me...

Roger

My name is Roger, and I'm going back to school at Palomar College to update and expand my computer skills. I'm starting with website design, working towards being able to program PHP/SQL pages. I'm also updating my ancient computer programming skills, with a goal of programming iPhone apps.

I am a father of two amazing daughters. My oldest, Leslie, graduated from Azusa Pacific University, and is working on her teaching degree. My youngest, Julia, is going to school at Palomar, working to become a social worker, and is getting married this Christmas (juliaandbryan.com). They are my life.

Pam and Roger

I have a girlfriend, Pam, who is amazing. I'm getting her wanting to ride a motorcycle, and she's gotten me playing a bass. She is the leader of her church band, and sings like a country angel.

Work

I am a printing press operator. I currently run the printing section at The Printing Shoppe in San Diego. We are a full service commercial printer, running both offset and digital presses.

Hobbies

Superhawk at Willow Springs

I ride a '02 Suzuki GSX-R 750, which I got after crashing my Superhawk. I miss that bike, but the speed of this bike helps lessen the loss. I explore San Diego county on weekends with my buddies, and ride the racetrack 4-5 times a year. I'm not the fastest rider out there, but I hold my own.

I am a voracious reader. Some of my favorite authors are Tom Clancy, John Steinbeck, Gregory Maquire, Rudyard Kipling, and Douglas Adams. Over the years I've been collecting First Edition copies of my favorite books. I am currently reading George R.R. Martin's "Fire and Ice" series.

I love music and going to shows. The bands currently getting the most play on the iPhone are Silversun Pickups, Radiohead, She Wants Revenge, and Joy Division.
