Hello there! My name is Joey Charpentier (I also answer to Joe or Joseph), and I am a technology professional with years of experience, who is taking a leap of faith to explore the world of writing. My journey began in the tech industry, but my passion for words and storytelling has led me to this exciting new chapter in my life. Let me walk you through my background and interests, which have shaped me into the writer I am today.
Technical Work Experience
My career started at Hewlett-Packard (later HP Inc.) where I started as a technician, then BIOS QA Tester in the PC Notebook division. I would then have a short stint with the newly split Hewlett-Packard Enterprise where I worked as a Server Technician in one of our data-center sized server labs. Later, I joined AMD as a Senior Test Engineer, where I developed and executed manual tests for the Server BIOS QA team, beginning with the Milan Server project and concluding with Genoa.
These experiences have equipped me with a strong foundation in technology, problem-solving, and attention to detail. As I transition into the world of writing, I believe that these skills will be invaluable in crafting well-researched and engaging content that resonates with readers.
Liberal Arts Education
While my career has been deeply rooted in technology, my educational background lies in the humanities. I hold a Bachelor’s Degree in English Literature with a minor in History. This education has not only fueled my passion for writing but also given me a unique perspective on the world around us. The combination of my technical expertise and love for literature allows me to approach topics with both creativity and precision.
Interests and Blog Topics
My interests are diverse and reflect the range of topics I cover on my blog. As a technology enthusiast, I enjoy exploring the latest advancements in science and tech, as well as diving into the world of video games. My love for fantasy worlds and reading novels often inspires me to write about the power of storytelling and the magic of imagination.
Additionally, my interest in history has taught me the importance of understanding the past to better navigate the present and shape the future. On my blog, you’ll find a blend of these passions, as I share my thoughts, insights, and experiences with you.
In conclusion, my journey from a technology worker to a writer has been an exciting and fulfilling one. I am eager to share my unique blend of technical knowledge, literary passion, and diverse interests with you through my writing. So, grab a cup of coffee, sit back, and join me as we explore this fascinating world together!
