Pictures of me (move mouse over image to change)


My name is Ray Barham, I am 27 years old, and I am a computer nerd that can date back his beginnings to the good old days of the 90's. I am currently happily employed as a Help Desk Technician at Gearbox Software. Before Gearbox, I spent 6+ years working as a PC Support Specialist (or computer tech) at Tulsa Community College in Tulsa, Oklahoma. In the fall of 2006 I married my high school sweetheart, Brandy, and graduated from Oklahoma State University with a bachelor's degree in computer science.

    Something I have been playing with for a few years now is computer case modding. I really enjoy taking something as ordinary as a computer case and customizing it to what I want and need.
