*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.
