I enjoy dark beer in cold months and light beer in warm months. It doesn't get much simpler than that.
Cloud Architect / Technologist / Geek / Entrepreneur
I am a technology enthusiast working to help people better understand technology and how to use it in their everyday life. This means providing guidance for improving technical processes, deployment, delivery, and utilization of web technology at home, in business organizations, teams, and projects. I focus on how technologists can better incorporate health & wellness into their flow from sun-up to sun-down.
By day I am a cloud solutions architect, systems administrator, and 'automator.' With over 12 years of experience, I have a great deal of experience in configuring and managing networks of 800+ computers and peripherals. I specialize in group policy, configuration management, networking, server/client support, web application development, hardware/software configuration, installation, and troubleshooting.
I moonlight as a technology consultant, host a technology podcast, build/flip web & mobile apps, help people be more efficient online and speak about health, work/life integration, and lifestyle design all in the context of being a 'geek.'
I spend my free time building, breaking, and sharing new things online. I made my first website - a Nintendo 64 cheat codes site hosted on Angelfire.com when I was 13. Since then I have published multiple websites, web applications, hybrid mobile applications, Alexa Skills, podcasts and much more. Learning and understanding the latest technology trends is an ultimate passion of mine. I spend everyday building and learning new technologies and then assign myself projects and experiments to ensure implementation.
Husband / Father
Most importantly I am a husband to Kara and father to Asher. I'm not the worst at either, but I am far from the best.
In addition to technology, I have a vast interest in physical, emotional, spiritual, and financial health. I focus on learning anything I can implement in my life to help me be a better husband, father, and well-rounded individual.
Everything I learn and utilize day-to-day has to first have relevance to what truly matters in this life. If optimization and process improvement doesn't move the needle here, it's not worth the effort. I strive to design a lifestyle that fills the most squares with the list resistance.
