My name is Chris Downing. I come from Petoskey, Michigan, USA.


I'm not just a tech geek, I'm a bit more of a broadcasting nerd. 


Except I work a housekeeping job at a casino that happens to be behind a Walmart.tongue-out


Glad to be a part of the geekzone community.

People around here can be funny. When reading a comment don't take it personally as everyone here knows we should always attack arguments not the people behind them. But if you see some sarcastic jokes, it happens. With time you will see there are lots of people who post around the forums in a variety of topics. Those more frequent posters help us make sure the community is safe.
