I am a certified IT professional with a strong background in virtualization, server deployment and end user compute. My career has taken me through several different verticals allowing me to develop a broad skill set beyond just IT.

I hold a Bachelor’s Degree in Computer Science and have also successfully completed the VMware Certified Professional Certification for Data Center and Desktop and Mobility (VCP5-DC, VCP6-DTM), Windows Server 2012 certification (MCSA) and Veeam Certified Engineer (VMCE) along with many other industry certifications. I have shown to be committed to ongoing education throughout my career.

I am most excited about the opportunity to continue to work with converged storage and virtualization. My home lab currently consist of vCenter 6.5 with 3 Dell hosts utilizing vSAN and a DR host for testing Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery solutions.

In the rare moments I am not at my desk or studying I am an avid fan of photography and vintage audio gear. As a proud Western Washington resident, I enjoy camping and riding quads with friends and family.
