Dave Myburgh has been involved with computers even before the Web existed. He studied to be a molecular biologist, but discovered that he liked working with computers more than bacteria. He had his own computer business in South Africa (where he grew up), which involved technical support and sales. He even created a few static web sites for clients during that time.
He went back to science for a few years when he first came to Canada, and then got sucked into the world of Drupal when a friend wanted a site for a local historical society. Since then, he has once again started his own company that now builds web sites exclusively in Drupal (he doesn't "do static" anymore). There is no lack of work in the Drupal world, and he now balances his time between work and family. He has also reviewed several Drupal books, including Drupal 5 Themes and Drupal 6 Themes.
