My IT career started around 2003, when I took on a minor role as a computer technician at my dad’s company. In 2004, during my senior year of high school, I took several IT certification classes at a local college, and eventually went on to enroll ECPI with a major in Network Security. I got my first real gig in 2006 when I started working for InMotion Hosting, where I have remained ever since. I began as a Tier 1 technical support rep wearing several hats. At the time I had no experience with Linux or any sort of programming, so I worked hard to learn everything I could. Over time my career progressed, and I’m now the manager of the Tier 3 Operations department, which is the highest level technical department in the company.
In 2009, I started an IT consulting business to offer my expertise to other companies and continue to grow my skills and experience. Nowadays, I support over 100 clients across various platforms. My services are also utilized by several government agencies, specifically for assistance in investigating credit card fraud and other cyber crimes, obtaining PCI and other security compliance, and training teams on cyber forensics and security protocols. Not to mention of course, maintaining thousands of Linux servers across the globe
