ABOUT

I'm an avid computer guru and Network Administrator with over nine years of firewall, managed switch, Windows and Linux server administration, virtualization, and programming experience in a fast paced manufacturing environment. In my spare time I dabble in other fields like IoT (Arduino, Raspberry Pi, etc), SQL database development, and most recently Linux OS operations.

On a personal side I enjoy spending time in the sand playing beach volleyball and participating in triathlons. I also own a photography business and enjoy traveling around the world.
