The Road Less Traveled
Unusual Career Paths from the NANOG Community

Did you ever take the road less traveled?
Community member + Network Architect Ron Grant understands a curvy path. He is an early adopter of the tech industry.

His interest began in the early 70s while attending the University of British Columbia (UBC) in pursuit of a computer science and mathematics degree; around the same time, the first message was sent over the ARPANET. The Canadian native may have started on the road to technology but would take a significant detour.
