Louie Girardot has been working as an IT professional since 1996 and has weathered a dizzying array of technological innovations since that time. Louie has previously never had a job that lasted this long - which he credits to the incredibly diverse range of industries that he gets to service - there is just never a dull moment. Some of his most interesting projects include a video system that captures video from inside underground sewer lines and a system that integrated two offices - one in New York City and one in Carbondale to function as if under the same roof. Louie's lifetime goal as a geek is to "dumb down" technical matters and use analogies to make technology accessible to the common man. As a Geekspeak host this translates into making the show as un-technical as possible; connecting with listeners who would normally roll their eyes and change the channel.
