It's pretty simple, I build networks that work. I enjoy listening to network managers' requirements and developing solutions that suit their needs. I fix problems others don't want to or can't. I deep dive into highly technical problems. I enjoy playing in the weeds when it comes to solving highly technical issues.
I started out in tech 20+ years ago doing telephone technical support. I worked as a road warrior for a few years, where I built networks and solved problems for customers. Most of my career has been spent as the primary Sr. Network Engineer for a mid-sized company in the Philadelphia metro. I manage all – yes all – of the network, routers, switches, firewalls, wireless and infrastructure security.
