The purpose of this blog is more of a generic knowledge base. Disclaimer: Material on this blog are mainly re-posts. No copyright infringement intended. I do not publish any documents that I have created for the companies I have worked for.
One obviously is security, and secondly I am not publishing documentation written for the company from a standpoint of being paid by that company for that documentation.
I started in computers at the age of 9 in 1982 while I was in 2nd grade with the Texas Instruments TI-99/4A. Atari 2600, then I graduated to the Apple IIe in the fourth grade. That was the beginning a lifelong enjoyment of systems and networks. Around that same time I also fell in love with photography. Through the years I have continued to enjoy both as hobbies.
I took time off from college after an internship lead to a full-time position to become a Novell Systems Administrator – Network Technician at a very large corporation all the way to Active Directory/VMware/Clustering Systems Engineer at that large corporation. After 18 years, I have re-enrolled and am currently pursuing a Bachelors of Science: Security Emphasis.
My current role is a System Engineer at a different company with a jack of all trades. EMC VNX SAN, Active Directory, Exchange 2013, SCCM 2012, Cisco UCS servers, Cisco Ironport Webfilter, Citrix XenApp, VMware vSphere… and some other things.
OFFICIAL TRAINING – Minus real world experience: Technical books, Tech Blogs, Webinars, Online Training, KB articles and a lot of white papers.
