Ed Klemz: Micro Bio:
So let's talk about me for a minute.

I'm the owner of Central Coast Solutions, Inc., a technology consulting company located in the Twin Cities area. We support the print, design and ad markets here with hardware, software, training and service. I love what I do and it's a blessing.

When I'm not working, I'm playing. Sometimes I play while working, which is just another bonus for me! My entire purpose is too extract as much fun from life as possible. If that means driving fast, seeing friends, fine dining (Snax! as it's known), traveling, hanging on rock or reading a good book, so be it. Life is too short to worry about the little shit. I've seen too many people die young, never having accomplished a fraction of their dreams. This will not happen to me.

I'm 6'4", 210lbs, have the trade-mark blond flat top and hazel eyes. I've had knee surgery because of football, running and other injuries-so now I can't run any more. Low impact for me! Biking, hiking, NordicTrack and rock climbing.

I love cars, car shows, going fast, girls in skimpy outfits sitting on cars, all of it. My mother (rest her soul) was a lead-footed high-speed woman her whole life and it rubbed off on all 6 of us boys. Thanks mom! My family is very close (literally), we all live within 15 miles of each other!

I've been a rock climber for a number of years and I love it. For those who know what I'm talking about, I'm a solid 5.10 climber. There is no better mental sport in my opinion, as it's all about mind and body control. It's a great release, and you'll find me hanging from my finger tips twice a week, and out at Sandstone, Taylor's Falls, Red Wing or Devil's Lake every weekend.

I play guitar and sing, was in a band for 4 years, and enjoy music of many types (you can keep your hip-hop for the most part). I golf far less than I should, but I enjoy it when I do. I love sci-fi, pets, doing things for others, biking, movies, jokes and making light of nearly every situation. Life is just a string of one-liners loosely strung together. I couldn't paint a portrait to save my life but I want to learn how.

I vacation a lot, have a number of friends around the USA I can visit at any time and make as much time for them as possible. My Godson Cameron is in San Jose, CA, so you'll find me out there a couple times a year. I've got plans to travel both in the US and abroad at all times - It is Minnesota after all, and the winters are the best reason I know to go south.

Through a chance meeting of a mutual friend at NSXPO 2002 in Dallas, Tx, I was introduced to the most wonderful woman in the world. In December of 2005, Pam and I were married and after over three years, it was easily the best thing that has ever happened to me. Its good to be loved.

I've learned in my life that people – good people – are the most important thing. Money is useless if you have no one to share it with. Possessions are just that. After your gone, someone else will posses them. Take time for new people and share this great experience called life!
