Hello and welcome, my name is Thomas Fonseca and I am a Sonoma county native. I am a resident of Rohnert Park California where I live with with my lovely wife Cheryl and our two boys Peter and Grant. I am a professional web developer, if this is of interest to you then please visit the services page. I am also a: son, father, husband, brother, uncle, runner and certified arborist.

I am an avid runner and a member of the Empire Runners Club. The background image for this site is a photo I took at Annadel State Park in an area of the park known as False Lake Meadow. Annadel is one of my favorite places to run. You can download a trail map of Annadel in pdf format here.

Computer programming is a passion of mine and so is biology. After learning about trophic levels in biology class I decided to write a java program to simulate three trophic levels, feel free to interact with it. Collecting vintage mechanical watches is another passion of mine, please check out my watch collection gallery.
