Jeff was one of the first-ever Computer Science graduages from Hope College in Holland, Mich. He still lives in Michigan with his wife and two sons, the youngest of whom is attending Michigan State (go Spartans!). A frustrated Detroit Lions fan, Jeff’s idea of a really good time is inviting 30 of his closest friends for a weekend of board games, poker, food, and deep conversation.
