Warren taught math at the high school level for two years before earning his bachelor's degree in mathematics and education in 1959 from Southwest Texas State Teachers College, now known as Southwest Texas State University. He then went on to earn three master's degrees: in mathematics and statistics from University of Texas at Austin in 1964, medical information science from University of California Medical Center in 1974, and computer engineering from Stanford University in 1977. He was also a PhD candidate in computer engineering at Stanford, and he chaired the mathematics department at the College of Notre Dame in Belmont, California, from 1965 to 1967. During his college years, Warren also taught mathematics and computer courses at the college level, including at San Jose State University, San Francisco State University, and Stanford. During the late 1960s and into the 1970s, Warren took on freelance work as a minicomputer programmer and consultant under the name Frelan Associates, with most of his work concentrated on custom-built realtime data-acquisition/process-control applications in biomedical research settings at Stanford University and its School of Medicine. During this same time, he chaired the Association for Computing Machinery's regional chapters of SIGPLAN and SIGMICRO, and the San Francisco Peninsula ACM. From 1968 to 1969, he was the general secretary of the Midpeninsula Free University. In 1977, Warren founded the West Coast Computer Faire, a conference that promoted personal computer use and showcased to the public pre-assembled personal computers and kits for building your own computer. Currently lives in Hansville, Wash.)
