Senior Cross-Platform Systems Administrator, Professional Writer
Last active: 28 days ago
I have fifteen-plus years working as a systems administrator, and am experienced in all phases of project development implementation, and operations. Specific basic technologies I am experienced in and can help with include virtualization, storage, LAN/WAN configuration, perimeter networking and security (including VPN), managed wireless networks, and of course hardware provisioning and configuration.
While my first love falls in the Linux ecosystem, I'm also very comfortable and proficient working with Windows, *BSD, MacOS, etc. Software I'm experienced in administering include various mail and groupware suites (Exchange, Zimbra, etc), RDBMS systems such as Oracle, MSSQL, and of course MySQL, web servers, print servers, you name it. I've worn a lot of hats and like it that way.
In addition to my ongoing career in IT, I have a lifelong love of writing. I entered college as a journalism major and have never completely left the field behind. If not actively writing, I've kept up with trends of the trade as well as current events. Writing in AP style is second nature to me.
