A native Oregonian, Daryl left Oregon State University with degrees in both Computer Science and Business Administration to join Viewpoint more than 30 years ago. In the early days with just 8 people, he enjoyed using all his skills in operating systems, application programming and electrical engineering. Long before networking and the internet, Daryl created "Oscar" (Operating System Changer) and "DJcom", combined with custom data transfer boxes, to transfer data between computers with different configurations. When later faced with porting a library of applications to an entirely new operating system, he created a series of management utilities that allowed the application software to operate relatively unchanged.
As the company grew, he evolved into managing the company's hardware platforms, systems software and technical customer support. He currently manages an IT staff dedicated to maintaining the internal infrastructure and related technology issues supporting all department and company needs.
The consummate technology junkie, he'd love a chance to spend time with Bill Gates for his vision for making computers ubiquitous for all. When not enmeshed in the latest technology, however, Daryl enjoys playing 6 and 12 string guitars, banjo, violin, piano and mountain dulcimer while squeezing a little camping, fishing and sailing
