Started out as a Unix sysadmin, writing backup scripts for old NCR towers that wrote to 3M tapes. I can still remember the options I used for cpio, dd, and find. From there I worked in a NOC doing frame relay and ATM testing, rounding out with point-to-point T1s. After that I spent a few years taking care of some routers, switches and a handful of Linux servers for HP running their special projects. Leaving there I started my stint as a road warrior, traveling all over the country (and sometimes out of it) doing instruction, configuration and customization of SolarWinds installations for customers ranging from retail to government.
Now I work from my home in the Pacific Northwest as Loop1's integrator blending systems together with PowerShell, Python, C#, SQL, SWQL, and any other glue necessary to do the job.
