After he had turned 18, he attended Lincoln Technical Institute in Mahwah, NJ for Automotive Technology. He dropped out and enlisted in the United States Army in 2000. After hearing of his father’s illness, it was difficult for him to finish out his term and receive a compassionate reassignment to be by his father’s bedside.

Hunt taught himself how to build computers and network them over various network devices. He has learned how to configure and monitor VoIP phones, convert Cisco IP phones for VoIP home use, program and utilize Raspberry Pi computers as print servers, Asterisks PBX, and a media center. He spends most of his time with his family and his home church Christian International Church of Lincoln Park, NJ. As an Amateur Radio Operator, he can be found mostly on the VHF and UHF bands of the Bergen, Passaic and Hudson repeaters.
