Alan Thompson


Raised on a farm in Eastern Ontario, Canada, but a love of driving fast cars eventually led to a move to California where roads were not covered in snow half of the year. A career as a software engineer in Montreal, Vancouver, and San Francisco was interrupted for a decade in the 1980's to live and work on a remote Central California cattle ranch while raising 2 children. A later move back to civilization in Monterey was followed by another stint with computers prior to retirement in Southern California.
