In High School I had a knack for computers and networking and seemed to know what I was doing. Though I went to college to become a police officer I found myself in college working for the college IT dept hooking students up to the campus network. I went around to student rooms hooking their computers up to the Novell IPX/SPX network and building boot disks for them to connect to the basic network to do word processing and email. For the students that had better computers, I installed the TCP/IP stack on their computer and was able to give them high speed Internet as well as invite them to my on-campus game server where we played “Duke Nukem” death matches. Those were the days! While still taking Criminal Justice classes I found myself working for that State of Vermont as a temporary network person, ranging from 1/2 time to full time while in class and during the summer. I got my first break in June of 2000 where I got hired for a Local insurance company to be their sole Network Administrator. From there I enhanced my skills with IOS and Windows and built a brand new network for the insurance company. in 2002 I landed my dream job (at the time because I just received my criminal justice degree) at Burlington Police as their sole Network Administrator where I was able to move the department from a bunch of cobbed together Novell crap to a very well put together Windows and Cisco environment that ran well. in 2005 I was scooped up by the City of Burlington start-up, Burlington Telecom, to build a triple play fiber to the home ISP. There is where I learned much about the carrier industry and was able to build an amazing network. Then in 2009 I once again was scooped up by a regional NSP to bring their regional network to the next level past start-up. in 2012 I landed my next dream job at the University of Vermont, where I am now, doing all the latest and greatest fun and amazing stuff that has to do with the next gen of networking. As of 2/2/17 I have been accepted into the Cisco Champion Program.
