I work as a Network Data Specialist for the Anne Arundel County Public Schools in Pasadena, MD. I hold the following professional certifications: CompTIA A+, CompTIA Network+, CompTIA Security+, (which also have the effect of making me a CompTIA IT Operations Specialist as well as a CompTIA Secure Infrastructure Specialist) and MCTS: Microsoft Exchange Server 2010, Configuration. I used to be CCNA certified years ago, but I let it lapse. I’m also back in school pursuing an AAS in Network Technology (though I’ve had to take a break from that recently).
I have two boys: John, and Isaac. I grew up in a wonderful neighborhood in Catonsville, MD, and lived in that vicinity for most of my life, but I now spend my days with my lovely wife, Emily near Middletown, DE.
In addition to keeping up with technology for work, I love to read (especially about history and political philosophy). I’m an avid football fan. Autumn weekends are spent keeping up with my Ravens and Packers. In recent years, I’ve also become interested in baseball, and love going to Orioles and Blue Rocks games.
In nicer weather, I travel to Gettysburg as often as I can (on occasion, even during snow storms), dragging anyone who is willing along with me.
