Curtis Hunton was born way after the time he should have been. He’s a cowboy born in the technology era, and his word and honor mean more to him than anything. When he wasn’t riding 2,000lb bulls both as an amateur and professional, he found he loved electronics. Gained his electronics knowledge from the Navy and worked 10 years fixing “things” in a place he can’t talk about. Had a great opportunity to run the famous “Fountains of Bellagio”. Unfortunately, being in an office just didn’t suit his love for roaming (the range?). Loves going from place to place to resolve issues, figuring out how things work, and fixing them or making them work one way or another. First and foremost, he’s a dad and husband, but also golfs, reads when he can (tech and fantasy). He can’t wait to find a fishing hole, loves to play sports, enjoys running (when his body stops breaking), and tinkers in programing and electronics. One day, he’ll make that cattle-drive if it kills him!
