Robert & Kathy Hilliard

Don't worry... this will be as brief as possible.

My name is Robert "Trip" Hilliard. I'm a native Texan and proud of it.

I was born and raised in Dallas, Texas. In my early teens, my family moved East to Tyler, Texas where I finished attending junior high and high school. I then went on to attend Tyler Junior College and The University of Texas at Tyler where I received a bachelor's and master's degree in Industrial Technology.

My wife, Kathy and I have been married for over 34 years. We have three children and seven wonderful grandchildren.

I've worked in the Information Technology field for over 30 years. I currently work for The University of Texas at Tyler as an Access Control Analyst/Information Security Administrator. My job involves facilitating and administering access rights and security in PeopleSoft.

In the past, I have worked as a Web Technologist / Webmaster and Senior Programmer Analyst for Christus Trinity Mother Frances (Formerly Trinity Mother Frances Hospitals & Clinics) and as a Programmer Analyst with The University of Texas Health Northeast (Formerly UT Health and Science Center) in Tyler. Also, for more than 18 years, I've personally designed and maintained numerous websites for a number of clients on the web.

Before getting into Information Technology, I worked in the television broadcasting industry. My hobbies include woodworking, photography, kiteflying and motorcycling.

One of my biggest accomplishments in Information Technology was that I was very interested and active in the Year 2000 Remediation from 1996 through 2001. I had a well-known Year 2000 website full of information on how to test your PC and fix it if it wasn't Year 2000 compliant. Feel free to view the page here from my archives.

Nationally, I was honored to be considered one of the top ten consultants in Year 2000 Remediation according to a Year 2000 poll conducted in San Diego at the time. I also wrote a short article that was published online at www.year2000.com and www.developer.com entitled, "The Year 2000: are you a time traveler?".

In March of 1996, I started this website with the hope of bringing some different perspectives to the world wide web. Over the years, the look and feel of this website may have changed but the intent with the messaging hasn't.

I truely believe that if you work hard and plan well, you can succeed at just about anything. Like Max Ehrman, I also believe that anyone can enjoy their achievements as well as their plans.

I hope you enjoy my corner of the world...wide web.          - Robert Hilliard
