I got started in this field when my dad picked up a Timex Sinclair ZX80 when I was 9. A few years passed and now I am a Senior Systems Administrator with over 15 years of experience, currently working in the manufacturing industry for a major candy manufacturer. Previous experience includes online and e-commerce. Up until a few years ago my main focus was servers and security, with a focus on VMware and Windows environments. I was thrust into the network word and the management of that environment and have enjoyed the challenges it has presented. My current network experience is with Cisco and more recently Juniper Networks. I inherited a unhealthy Orion deployment and have enjoyed bringing it back to life. Working with the people at SolarWinds has been a great experience and pleasure.
Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my wife and two kids. I love being outdoors and enjoy mountain biking, hiking, camping and climbing. Motorcycles are a long time passion – MotoGP and Motocross are where it’s at.
