About Me

First lets get the question that most people ask first out of the way, Logtar has been my online handle since back in college, I got it out of a game called Warcraft II and it is pronounced LOG-TAR. I got the domain back then and have used the handle ever since.

I am a Colombian-American. I grew up in Cali, Colombia. Cali is the third largest city behind Bogota and Medellin. Many people think of Colombia as a country where the streets are not paved and you have to travel in a cargo plane next to pigs and chickens to get there. I find that funny and blame Hollywood for the misinformation. Some day I will actually get this blog about Colombia going, but I just don’t have time to create content for it anymore.

My first language is Spanish, I’ve been learning English since my late teens so this blog started as an exercise to further improve my writing after I got out of college. This blog has done a lot more than that for me, it has connected me with people from all over the world.

I started my professional life as a computer programmer, and have worked most of my career in the Content Management and Workflow side of things. I have done everything from being a code monkey to managing full life-cycle projects, even having resources overseas. I am now a senior analyst for a firm that keeps me plenty busy. One of my other passions that has also made me some money is translation and interpretation.

I love creating content, and even used to do some writing for blogcritics and an online tech website, but have not done it recently. I have a hard enough time creating content for my own sites but loved the experience of working with both of those. I do freelance for the right projects, so just contact me if you need any of my professional services. I plan on doing lots more photography soon because I love it and miss it.

In my spare time I love to hang out with my wife and try new restaurants. We also both enjoy hanging out with our family and friends. We also both love online gaming, specially a little game called WoW. Life its all about relationships and the better they are, the better your life will be. I also enjoy movies and books, but LOVE video games. I also love martial arts, I have practiced Tae Kwon Do and Kung Fu and miss training quite a bit. I enjoy a good game of chess, but don’t turn down a challenge in other board games. My other passion is motorcycles even though right now I am bikeless, but I will be fixing that problem soon enough.

Life is a river of ever flowing water that sometimes gets damned by situations. Sometimes life itself makes the water stop flowing, but more often we are the culprits. I felt like the water that made up my soul was stagnant for quite some time in many areas… I spend my life trying to make sure the flow never stops. I guess that is what self actualization is all about.

  1. Sorry to hear you live in Midland. I lived there almost seven years but fortunately was able to escape in 2004.

  2. Hey, Just somthing about the boondock saint’s, since you have some nice information…I have a question about the following quotes:, well prayers, theres a few here, 4 I believe, is there anyway to put them in an order so it makes sense? that way I can get a big tattoo incorperating them all

    “And Shepherds we shall be
    For thee, my Lord, for thee.
    Power hath descended forth from Thy hand
    Our feet may swiftly carry out Thy commands.
    So we shall flow a river forth to Thee
    And teeming with souls shall it ever be.
    In Nomeni Patri Et Fili Spiritus Sancti.”

    “And when I vest my flashing sword And my hand takes hold in judgement I will take vengeance upon mine enemies And I will repay those who hase me O Lord, raise me to Thy right hand And count me amoung Thy saints .”

    “Whosoever shed last blood. By man shall his blood be shed. For immunity of god make he the man. Destroy all that which is evil. So that which is good may flourish. And I shall count thee amoung my favoured sheep. And you shall have the protection of all the angels in heaven.”

    “Never shall innocent blood be shed. Yet the blood of the wicked shall flow like a river. The three shall spread their blackened wings and be the vengeaful striking hammer of god. “

  3. Hey I noticed you have the Free Hugs video on your Blog, and you lived in Chicago and Midland, and you like motorcycles!

    I am the Bear in the Free BEAR Hugs video ( inspired by Juan Mann). The music is by the Chicago band Silver Atlas – which is a derivative of JAB (Just Another Band) & Mass Confusion, 2 Saginaw bands from the 80s. I’m also from Saginaw, Eisenhower Class of 88. Lived in Chicago since 92. I also have a fondness for motorcycles. 71 Honda CL100 (being restored), 05 Yamaha TW200 (soon to be pimped out Japanese style), & the bike that I’ll never sell, my 2001 Kawasaki W650.

    Please check out the video. Post it if you like. Kind of a consolation for Bears fans, now. Go Bears!

  5. Hiya Logtar,

    Thought I’d come and have a nosey around your ‘about me’ page and get some tips ;-)

    God Bless!
