About Me

As a homeschooled kid in small-town South Carolina, I was extremely interested in computers. Once I realized I had an affinity for technology, I never looked back. After graduating a couple years early from high school, I began my career on graduation day with an internship at a local system integrator shop. I went on to delve into programming, network infrastructure, telephony, and more. Over my career in IT spanning more than 25 years, I’ve collected many certificates [Microsoft, Citrix, Ascom, Genesys, Milestone VMS, C-Cure 9000, etc…], and I even earned my Microsoft MCSE NT 4.0 in the early years. Here recently, I’m currently investing lots of time in Azure, Teams and Security.
