Windows / Linux / Unix sysadmin since '96. Cut my teeth on Xenix (ick!) and have been a Linux user since '93 (yay-- Slackware!). Worked w/ more Windows NT 3.51 and 4.0 than I care to recall. Today MSFT stuff mainly pays my bills but I try to keep at least passingly familiar with Linux.

I've been an independent consultant / contractor since 2004. I write some code too but my main gig is sysadmin and IT project work.

Server Fault bragging:

  • I was the top rep user on the site from July 22, 2009 to November 24, 2014.
  • First user to hit the rep cap from their laboring wife's hospital room
  • First user awarded the Legendary badge (hitting the rep cap 150 days).
  • First user awarded the "Epic" badge (hitting the rep cap 50 days)
  • First user to be awarded a tag badge (for "windows")
  • First user awarded the gold "windows" tag badge
  • First non-beta user over the 10K reputation mark and the second user to do it, beta nonwithstanding. Also the first user over the 20K, 30K, 40K, 50K, 60K, 70K, 80K, 90K, 100K, and 110K marks.

Further shameless plugging
