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.
At this point in time, I am an Indepdendent Security Researcher. I currently am looking for work doing any of the following:
- System Administrator - I'm a Windows Admin, have some experience with Linux & would need to learn Puppet/Chef from the ground up.
- Penetration Tester / Network Security- Security fascinates me. I would love to work as a jr to mid level red or blue team. I'm familiar with Powershell & would love to use it in an offensive capacity.
- Security Researcher - Research in security is amazing especially in the physical space. I would prefer working at a place that allows me to share my work at conferences & with my lockpicking group Lockpickers of NJ
- Access Control Integrator - Many people tell me I would be great for this position as I know about IP networking, server setups & am fascinated with locksmithing & lockpicking. I do not have a Locksmith License but I am looking to change that in the near future. If you are located in NJ & are looking for an apprenteice that is willing to learn on weekends & evenings & is able to correspond via e-mail, please contact me!
In January 2010 I graduated from Monmouth University with a B.A in Communication & Certificate in Information Technology.
In previous employment roles, I worked as a System Administrator. I at times administer 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.
I'd like to one day become a Microsoft Most Valuable Professional, and or Microsoft Certified Master in Exchange or Active Directory. I'm a member of LOPSA & I frequent the LOPSA-NJ monthly meetups.
Prior to that 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.
