Hello, I am Paul, and thank you for visiting my website!

I created Computer Looking Up to write useful articles primarily about technology, astrophotography, and my other interests like science fiction.

About Me

I have over 30 years of experience in computer programming, information technology, and project management.

When I am not writing here or photographing the sky, I may be practicing guitar, playing games on Steam or Xbox, or spending time with my dog. I am always looking for my next “build” project, which could likely get written about on this blog.

I follow professional golf and American football. My original upbringing was all around baseball, but I have lost most interest in it, for a variety of reasons, not the least of which is the now-universal designated hitter. Before there were two identical American Leagues, I was a fan of real baseball played by the old National League.

I am an Eagle Scout.
