About me

Professional background:

I’ve been in IT since 2002 with progressing responsibility.   Below you can see all the different IT roles I’ve held in sequential order.

  1. Phone based tech support (year 2002)
  2. Desktop tech support
  3. Desktop engineer
  4. Systems Administrator
  5. Senior Systems Administrator
  6. Senior Infrastructure Architect
  7. Manager of Systems Administration. (year 2014)

Tech I have experience with:

Here is a brief summary of some of the tech I have experience with.  There is a ton of 3rd party solutions I’ve worked with not listed here.

  • Microsoft Windows (and its related components) NT4 (yuck) – present
  • Microsoft Exchange 2003 – 2013
  • Microsoft SQL 2000 – 2017
  • VMware vSphere 3.x – 6
  • Equallogic (before Dell), Nimble Storage, Microsoft Storage Spaces 2012, and DotHill.
  • All kinds of other 3rd party solutions (Riverbed, Postini, JAMS, Veeam, CommVault, etc.)
  • Powershell and VBscript

In general, I’m a jack of all trades.  I don’t like being tied to specific roles like storage admin, virtualization admin, exchange admin, etc.  I like having an opportunity to work on all of it.  Its made me a more versatile IT person and IMO a more valuable one too.

Personal background:

When I’m not doing something technology related, you’ll find me doing any number of things.

  • Spending time with my wife, two kids and our crazy dog.
  • Trying out new microbrews.  If you’re ever in the Allentown / King of Prussia area and want to grab a beer, let me know.
  • Weight lifting is something I do several times a week.  The squat and deadlift are my favorite exercises.
  • I love eating, hence why I lift weights several times a week.
  • Movies, TV and video games.
  • Going to the beach or the pool.
  • I’m a pretty big “petrol head” as they say.  Can’t turn a wrench to save my life, but I can appreciate and enjoy driving performance vehicles.
