    Hello everyone, I'm looking for a job in DC. I have been tested as typing 92wpm, I achieved a perfect score on the LSAT, and I have created computer programs on multiple occasions that accomplish tasks in a fraction of the time they were taking non-programmer employees. You can find my resume at I am willing to pay a referral fee to anyone who can connect me with a position. Thank you!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.

Henry, started Reno Motorcycle Riders
