From his homepage:
In January of 1999, I left my job as a performance analyst with IBM, and went into business for myself. I operate as Fairbrother Consulting Services, where I am concentrating on programming, and am a partnner in GOPUSA.com, a web design and maintenance company also specialializing in delivering the conservative message on the internet.
I handle everything from web design, application programming, IT work, office installation, project management, and comapign consulting.
Politics is a full-time (unfortunately unpaid) labor of love for me. In February of 1999, I was elected Chairman of the Williamson County Republican Party. In 2002, I ran unopposed. I will be running for another 2 year term in 2004. I am an officer in the Texas Republican County Chairmen's Association, and was honored to be chosen as an alternate delegate to the 2000 Republican National Convention.
