I am the son of goodly parents, the husband of an angel, and the father of 3 boys that teach me to be a better man. I write poetry, prose, and other fragments of thought. I help others bring their thoughts and ideas together.
I am … William (Iron Wil) K. Becker and was born in the winter of 1975. My father joined the military in the spring of 1977 and a short time later our family began globe trotting.
I graduated in 1993 from a DoDDS (Department of Defense Dependent High School). My family returned to the US in 1994 when dad was reassigned the last time. I then served a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Later-day Saints from 1998 to 2000 and then I attended ASU (Angelo State University) and graduated in December 2004.
My love of computers began the day my parents brought home a Goldstar. I took every opportunity to use computers and learn as much as possible about how they work. After serving the mission, I jumped right back into computers.
I started IronWil CS in 2003 while still in attending ASU. I spent time helping others fix their computers and answering computer-related questions both formally and informally for friends and family. After finishing college, my wife and I moved to the DC Metro area.
My nickname and this website’s name comes from David, my youngest brother, who lovingly calls me “Iron Wil”.
