About Me

Adrian J. Moreno is a Senior Enterprise Web Architect specializing in ColdFusion and Java application development and instruction.

I have been working with ColdFusion since 1997 when I was the webmaster for the UNT School of Visual Arts. In 1999, I jumped on a newsgroup search engine, searched for "Dallas HTML", applied to the 2nd result and was hired two weeks later. Thus began my corporate career.

Since then, I've been fortunate to have worked for some pretty big players: GetThere (Sabre, travel), Nationwide (401k), Unitrin (Insurance) and Study Island (Education). Currently, I am a Senior Enterprise Architect for Equator.com, a leading real estate technology provider based in Los Angelese with offices in Plano, Orange County and Seattle. I also manage the DFW ColdFusion User Group.

Do you really know Kung Fu?

Back in college, I was the Student Leader for the UNT Martial Arts group. We practiced Mixed Martial Arts before MMA was a common term. Most recently, I studied Pekiti Tirsia with a group here in Dallas. Technically, I've got a green belt in Tae Kwon Do, but that was years before I got into MMA. My sensei just describes me as "very dangerous". Now my brother, he's got a black belt in Kung Fu.

Yeah, don't mess with us. Was-sa!

Hobbies

When I'm not programming, you can find me playing games online (i.e. Modern Warfare, Call of Duty, Team Fortress 2, Left 4 Dead), sitting down to a game of Texas Hold'em or working out in the gym.
