Welcome to my personal website. On this website you'll find pages that talk about my passion for System Administration, the organizations I'm a part of such as LOPSA & TOOOL, my varied interests & some additional links to some of my cohorts sites.
In January 2010 I graduated from Monmouth University with a B.A in Communication & Certificate in Information Technology. I went this route to increase my skills as future technology professional. There are many introverted individuals out there who struggle with getting ideas across & communicating in a public space.
Currently I work as a System Administratror in a hosting environment. The environment is unique, challenging & fun. I have a lot to learn about Linux, Red Hat, CentOS, Ansible & System Administration at scale. You can find more about that on my Sysadmin/Homelab page
In my previous employment role, I worked as a System Administrator. I adminsitered a Windows network with some Linux. Majority of the technology I touch is added LinkedIn on a frequent basis. You can find more about this on my System Administration page. At one point in time, I had a desire to become Microsoft Certified Master in Active Directory, but Microsoft no longer offers this certification. To keep up to date in technology, I follow quite a few people in the technology & security fields on Twitter, am a member & frequent attender of LOPSA - there are local LOPSA-NJ monthly meetups. The topics vary from month to month & the focus is typically on Linux & upcoming technology.
Prior to System Administration work, I worked as an IT Instructor teaching CompTIA A+, Network+ & Security+ courses at Computer Insight Learning Center. If you're based in central New Jersey, this is a solid testing center. Just call prior to scheduling an exam to verify the owner is open the day you wish to test. There is additional training provided there, but I would not recommend the training provided by the testing site, as it is generic SkillSoft Courseware - bottom of the barrel training - I personally highly recommend CBTNuggets.
I previously ran my own computer repair company, Tenehawk Computer Services with Ryan Abbott. Due to working full time, I no longer work for Tenehawk Computer Services. I do however provide support and assistance on a consulting basis. My rate varies depending on the work requested. This is separate from Tenehawk Computer Services and separate from my primary job. I am available on weekends, and depending on where you are located, evenings as well.
Other information such as work experience and the like, can be found on my LinkedIn.
Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have questions you want to throw my way, or want to chat about something. I can be found on IRC in ##sysadmins & #reddit-sysadmin on Freenode. If I do not reply, message me on Twitter as I get notified of that immediately.
