I began my career in IT thanks to the willingness of Dave "Doe" who was a very talented Novell CNE. Dave taught me networking basics, helped me assemble my first Netware labs and frequently put my skills to the test by making configuration changes to the lab and allowing me to search until I discovered the problem(s).
In the years that followed, I earned the CompTIA A+ certification and 3 Novell CNA certifications - CNA certification in Netware 3, Netware 4, and Netware 5. Other certifications include MCSE (NT 4), CCNA (x2) and CCNA-Security.
Currently (June 2013) I'm focused on Windows Server 2012, Cisco CCNP Route exam preparation, PowerShell and IPv6. When I'm not working or spending time with my family I enjoy working with the various OSs in virtual environment.
I'm forever indebted to Dave and at his request, I repay the debt whenever possible by helping others who need help.
