Please allow me to introduce myself.
My name is Rial F. Sloan II and I am a self proclaimed geek, apprentice of information, and technophiliac. I live in Tunnel Hill, GA and work as a Systems Administrator and Technical Support for my day job, and volunteer as a Production Specialist at my church. I entertain myself with a decent amount of video gaming, cooking, and movie watching when I’m not hanging out with friends or my family of four.
I seek to improve my knowledge of computers and communication services every chance I get. I enjoy the communication, productivity, and entertainment technology affords us today and love to be where I can see the progress we are making in it. I hope to steadily gain expertise and contacts in the computing and communication fields I come across to the point where I am confident I can answer any question or know who or where to look for the answer.
My professional goals by the time I retire include being a valuable asset to whomever I am employed by, providing advice and service to clients that will enable them to be more successful in their field of expertise, and to reach out to those who wish to have a better knowledge of technology in the computing and communications fields.
My hobbies include actively enjoying the outdoors by hiking, backpacking, camping, rafting, climbing, and whatever I can find to fuel my interests in the wilderness. I was in the Boy Scouts of America programs for 12 years, and continue to provide adult leadership when necessary by my home Boy Scout Troop. I also am a hobbiest photographer, videographer, and DJ. My brother Robert and I founded RockShow DJ Entertainment Services, LLC out of our own interest in providing entertainment for groups of people.
My wife, Mary D. Sloan (Locklear), keeps me company when I’m at home. She’s a graduate of Georgia State University with a Bachelors in Psychology and a minor in Anthropology. We were married on April 10, 2010 at Camp Fortson just south of Atlanta, GA. We have a daughter, Alden, and a son, Noah. We put all of our efforts outside of church and work into being a productive family of four. During the summer of 2010 Molly began to attend classes at University of Tennessee at Chattanooga to work on her Masters of Education Degree, but that was put on hold when Alden arrived. She hopes to eventually get back to work in an Autism program in a local school or research facility.
