Who am I?
Live, laugh, & Love!I am a passionate guy who enjoys life to the fullest! Life is way too short not too!!!
I smile because I am happy, I smile even when I am sad… why you may ask? Because I know that I am blessed with Love!
So, now that I have that out of the way… allow me to introduce myself. My name is Brian Tafoya and you have come across my little bit of HTML on the “Interwebs”.
I find joy in the simplest things and even in the face of sadness because I recognize the abundant love that surrounds me. So, here’s a bit about me – born in sunny California but raised in the enchanting Rio Grande valley of Northern New Mexico. My journey with technology began at a tender age when my father introduced me to a Commodore computer, igniting a lifelong passion for programming. Around the same time, I picked up a guitar, and that marked the beginning of a lifelong love affair with music and multiple instruments, not to mention my venture into vocal artistry.
In my early twenties, I tied the knot, embarking on a marriage that lasted less than two decades, with the blessings of three wonderful children, and now two adorable grandchildren. New Mexico was home, where I worked as a proud member of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers until 1998. Then, my career path took a turn, leading me into the world of software development, where I contributed my skills to various prominent corporations. Eventually, I took a leap of faith and founded my first business, breaking free from the corporate grind and becoming my own boss.
In late 2011, destiny called me to Florida’s Space Coast, where I’ve been calling home ever since. Just a few months later, life threw me a curveball – a diagnosis of heart failure. Yet, in 2018, I was gifted a second chance at life through a miraculous heart transplant.
Fast forward to October 2023, and I’ve marked a remarkable milestone – celebrating my 5-year heart transplant anniversary, ready to rejoin the workforce and continue my journey with a newfound zest for life!
Embrace life with a smile and an open heart! Live life to the fullest because, let’s face it, life is too short to do otherwise!!!!
