I’m Steve Shaffer.
Professionally I used to be a veteran technologist; I’m still an entrepreneur. I’ve been involved in many interesting changes in computers and networking over the last 29 years. I hold patents in parallel processing, advanced caching systems, and DWDM network design. After a lot of thought, conversation, and a healthy nudge from a friend Marilee and I have followed our passion and are now urban winemakers Urban Legend Cellars.
Personally I’m happily married 25+ years and counting. My midlife crisis (motorcycling) has become an embedded habit over the last few years. I’ve become an avid fan of motorcycle road racing both USA and world wide. The athleticism, mental acuity, and coordination required to race at a national or international level is amazing. As spectator sport it beats the daylights out of NASCAR, football, or baseball.
