About Me

Hi! I'm Clayton O'Rourke

I am a 40 year young man that is happily married with a 3 month old, 4 year old, & 5 year old. I love the outdoors and really enjoy spending time with my family camping and experiencing new adventures together. Growing up I enjoyed playing baseball, fishing, hunting, and just generally being outside. I had a passion for art, creative thinking, and technology which lead me in many different directions.

I have been many places and have seen many things, on my journey I have managed to stay creative and to adapt to the ever changing Online presence as well as grow my knowledge base and software skills.

My path has not been a straight line nor has it had it's share of dull moments. After leaving high school I managed to follow a seemingly non-traditional path to lead me here today! From the most rural almost un-charted farm towns in the middle of the United States to the metropolitan surroundings of Phoenix Arizona and back here to Michigan. I have seen the biggest and the smallest of places our nation has to offer.
