This website is a hodgepodge of elements thrown together by Yours Truly for the sole purpose of amusing myself and, perhaps occasionally, others. Most likely you’ll just find it boring though. After all, who really wants to sift through my monotonous portfolio
? Or, worst of all, take a look into the inner-workings of my mind in my blog
? I am Alex Laird, a 2011 Computer Science
graduate of Cedarville University
, Software Engineer at Rockwell Collins
, Owner of Branches Hosting
, freelance programmer, and server administrator extraordinaire. I earned a wife named Jessica
from Cedarville, so I recommend the school. I am also the youngest sibling of a crazy oldest sister (Jenna
), one brother (Andrew
), and one other sister (Ashley
Being born and raised into a Christian family, I have since made God (not to be confused with religion
) the center of my life; my faith is something I’m particularly passionate about, which is most likely one reason I’ve decided to attend a Christian University and get a minor in Biblical Studies. My faith in Christ is the most important thing in my life.
As far as personal interests and random facts go, I’m very interested in my relationships with friends and family, programming and web design, table tennis, Rubik’s cubes
, basically anything technologically innovative, and creative writing
. If you’d care to learn more, I’ve compiled a list of sixteen random facts about myself, and it can be found here
I’ve never officially been able to decide on a favorite band, but I’ll usually listen to any music from any genre. More specifically, I love bands that put effort into combining meaningful lyrical content, especially that I can relate to personally, with creative and unique sounds. Just not too creative
. As far as movies go, my favorites are (to name a few) Gladiator
, V for Vendetta
, The Prestige
, Blood Diamond
, and The Simpsons Movie
. On that note, my favorite TV shows are Seinfeld
, The Simpsons
, and Breaking Bad
. And what kind of a Computer Science major would I be if I didn’t enjoy Firefly
Oh, and I love anything and everything relating to fire, explosives, and just danger in general. True story.
In closing, be true to your school just like you would to your girl, and your dreams come true. And speaking of girls, if you’re here because you’re interested in pursuing a relationship with me, please fill out and submit this exam. Though I am already married to Jess, who is the love of my life, you’re welcome to submit the quiz and fight her for the position. But she’s one tough cookie.
Enjoy the site!
