Kurt Shintaku

Kurt Shintaku is a Sr. Systems Engineer with the Microsoft Corporation.  He has worked in Southern California as a Core Operating Systems Product Specialist for Microsoft for over 5 years and has been a regular speaker at both Microsoft Technet Seminars as well as a frequent technical informational conduit for entertainment industries customers in the Century City/Beverly Hills/Burbank areas interested in Windows NT/2000/CE operating systems.

Formerly with the Hewlett Packard Company for 6 years, & Visa International for 3 years, Kurt has had more experience in the field of computers than he cares to recollect in his short life.  He secretly hopes that all this geekiness will somehow result in him hooking up with Jessica Alba someday.

Kurt is a Computer Science & Engineering graduate of UCLA's School of Engineering, and a diehard UCLA Bruin fan.  He is also the sponsor for the Los Angeles Windows Media Users Group.  Fanatical USC Trojans, irrational Palm/Handspring salespeople, and Novell NetWare advocates need not apply.
