Douglas J. Vos

Hello, I’m Doug Vos.  I’ve been  happily married to Jane (my high school sweetheart) for over 32 years. We have 5 children and 4 grand-children.

I’m an Internet media strategist and publisher, currently living in Dearborn, Michigan.  I was an IT Systems Architect, Network Designer, Web Developer and Big IT guy for 20 years, working with EDS and HP (mostly on the General Motors account).

Back in the day (1978-1984) I studied anthropology, linguistics, Bible and theology at Kuyper College. Later on I picked up a few computer language courses.

I’m an amateur guitarist, singer and song-writer — and I enjoy photography.

Jane and I have been members of Oakland Hills Community Church for many years, and I’ve been priveledged to serve as an ordained Deacon for over 20 years.

I’m an innovator and entrepreneur. In 1996,  Jane and I founded IX Publishing. In 2009 we launched Five More Talents — a web design firm that help churches, ministries and non-profits. I enjoy wearing many hats, and along with being editor and publisher of the Dearborn Free Press, I’m also the publisher for The Aquila Report.

I’m an advocate for web standards (standardista) – the social-media gadfly and idea guy behind Blue Beanie Day. My favorite software tools (in alphabetical order) are CSS, HTML, JavaScript, PHP, Python, Rebol, Ruby and WordPress.
