Master of Science in Land Development – Texas A&M University While working to earn a Master of Science degree in Land Development at Texas A&M University I bought my first Macintosh—a Mac 512K enhanced—finally, a computer for non-programmers. The Mac opened up creative minds beyond the ability to rearrange bits and bytes. This first “Fat Mac” would, years later, inspire the construction of a macquarium. Numerous subsequent Macs have served as productivity tools in my design, engineering and marketing career. I also operated as an information systems consultant and an Authorized Apple VAR (Value Added Reseller) for many years when Apple was still Apple Computer.
