A picture of me! This page is just a bit about me, my personal likes, dislikes, interests, passions, and hobbies.  As I mentioned, my name is Paul Michael Parkhurst and I live in sunny (usually) San Ramon, California.  San Ramon is in the East San Francisco Bay Area.  I work as a senior software engineer at Arris Group, Inc. in the WorkAssure group. I am married to Brenda Anela Parkhurst, but have not yet been blessed with children. 

To the left, you'll find buttons that will take you to a few pages about myself that you might find interesting.  The top one takes you to a page that has some pictures of me at different times of my life.  The next one accesses a brief treatise on some of my political beliefs.  The third has an essay I wrote for some coworkers when they became citizens of the United States back in August.  I've also collected a few quotes that I like.  The wall of my cubicle at work is covered with quotes such as these :-)  Finally, the poem "IF" by Rudyard Kipling has always had a special place in my heart.  Hope you enjoy these pages!
