Hi!! I am new to the forum and just wanted to introduce myself. I am Dakster Sullivan and I am currently a member of the 501st in the Florida Garrison. I got lucky in love and married a guy with the same interests as me (my parents weren't thrilled, but I keep telling them I have the perfect guy because he would never make me watch a Monday night football game and he loves cartoons, Star Wars, and Transformers).
He got lucky because I'm 26 and hes 38 (do the math, hes making out like a bandit). I have 2 children (husband is always the first born) and we have a soon to be 6 year old son. He makes me so proud because when we were at Star Wars Celebration V he recognized and named off the characters he saw (insert tear of pride). He enjoys Thomas the Train, Batman, Superman, Star Wars (of course) and his favorite pastime with mommy and daddy is light-saber duels in the front yard just before bedtime. He also enjoys watching the Clone Wars and yelling "mommy" anytime he sees a clone on the screen.
I am the full time working parent (network engineer aka "resident geek") and my husband enjoys being a stay at home dad / home maker. I currently have a 501st approved Clone Trooper "Denal" and I am starting to work on my Cad Bane. I am currently getting some help on the bhg for Bane, but will accept any advice I can get. It is also a goal of mine to eventually build an R2-D2 droid unit. I have an A.S in Computer Engineering as well as 3 CompTia industry certifications and 2 Microsoft certificates (working on my 3rd). Feel free to drop me a line, I enjoy the internet social scene.
Well thats all for now. Looking forward to making some more friends and allies in the Star Wars world.
