"Father, Husband, Gamer, Geek" - First draft of my headstone!
In all seriousness, I've been working in IT for around 20 years, but have embraced IT as a hobby for 30. It all started back in the day when my father bought me a Sinclair Spectrum 48K (the original one, with the rubber keyboard). There I tried my hand and coding, and with the help of INPUT magazine, wrote my first program!
Now, a seasoned (OK, OK, veteran, I am in my 40's now after all..) IT pro, and founder/principle consultant at my own IT consultancy business, I still do the odd but of scripting, but nowadays I work exclusively with SolarWinds' products. I help my own clients, and end-users alike, get the most out of their investment in this awesome set of products!
I'm a self professed IT swiss-army knife, with deep knowledge in some fields, and enough to get by in most others. I have a thirst of knowledge and never turn away from a challenge. After all, we humans are all built to learn, right?
