Hello my name is Ryan “Axe” Howe and I am from Milford, MA…
Well, well, well … lets see. I was born in California and have lived in Ohio, Connecticut, Texas, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Florida and of course California.
I graduated from the University of Massachusetts at Lowell with a bachelors degree in Mechanical Engineering in 05′. I started working on a minor in Computer Science but unfortunately did not finish the requirements for the minor.
I was an E.M.T. (emergency medical technician … a.k.a. ambulance driver) for eight years in the lovely city of Lowell MA (Heroin capital of New England) with Trinity E.M.S. Inc. Though it was an eye opening experience it was a good one. You learn a lot about people and a lot of medicine working on the ambulance. While at Trinity I was able to work though the last few years of college while being a 911 dispatcher. I meet a lot of great people, and a lot of people I never want to see again. But I do miss some of the fun we had and people I had it with.
While at Trinity I got the chance to be one of the charter members of a new motorcycle club starting to branch out from Florida. Fire & Iron Motorcycle Club Station 28 started as the first Station north of Georgia back in 2004. We have gone through a lot of growing and learning but we are still going strong. I’m looking forward to a lot of fun years with the club and the guys who make it up. I moved stations to Station 60 in Rhode Island, while I lived there. And most recently I am a member of Station 128 in Blackstone Valley MA.
From Trinity I moved on to work as a Product Application Engineer and Programmer with a small company JNJ Industries in Franklin, MA. My primary responsibilities include programming support for the interoffice applications. As well as Application Engineering for new products and industries.
I went from there to working for a company in Concord, MA. OneSource Information Services where I work as a web application developer (programmer) and primarily as a Database Programmer. It’s a great job that changes every day. The group that I worked with were basically the in-house consultants. That means that we work on new projects all of the time.
After that I worked as a senior web developer at Audit Analytics, were we primary pull data for publicly traded companies. Specializing on the Audit information obtained.
Currently I work from home form TrueCar as a software engineer.
When I am not at work I am working on my computer, either on new programming ideas or working on my server (which this web page resides). Or of course reading away with all of my programming books … as I am a power geek! When the weather here in New England is above freezing I try and get outside whenever I can, either on my motorcycle or out camping.
Other than that I have interests in photography, custom bike building, classic cars, and flying.
