Tom Stovall’s mom got him a Timex Sinclair 1000 in 1982 for his birthday and the first night he slept with it under his pillow. Both school teachersand his mom and dad always made sure he had access to computers and today’s programming chops owes its origin to those lazy summers spent in front of whatever hardware he could beg, borrow or use when no one was looking.
He started doing websites in 1995 with PERL, later with PHP. He now works for REI Systems, Inc. in Reston, Virginia, doing Drupal-based performance analysis websites for the White House Office of Management and Budget (OMB).
