Welcome to Author Jim Haberkorn
Jim Haberkorn was born in Brooklyn, New york in 1951. When a teenager, he moved with his family to the west coast, settling in San Francisco for a time before moving south into Silicon Valley. After attending college, completing a church mission, and spending six years in the Marines, he joined a computer company in 1978 and is still employed there today. He has lived on three continents and done business in over forty countries but still counts Idaho–the home of Boise State University, his alma mater, and Rulon Hurt, his hammer-wielding cowboy–as one of his favorite places. Currently, Jim lives in Zurich, Switzerland with his wife Kim.
