Bob Holden

Welcome to my little corner of the Internet. You've probably arrived because you are curious about me, so here is a little background.

Early Years

I was born in the West San Fernando Valley of Southern California and lived there for 45 years. I did the normal kid things, had a paper route, worked for Jack In The Box, Duke of Bourbon Liquors, several San Fernando Valley Landscape and Irrigation businesses, and . In addition to having fun, I graduated Canoga Park High School despite having ADD(Attention Deficit Disorder) and not quite fitting the acceptable scholastic stereotype in order to be considered a successful student. However, I did not want to stop learning and in 1970, I attended Pierce Community College in Woodland Hills, CA and took classes in a somewhat new field of Systems Analysis, which would turn out to be my life's work.
