Over the past ten years I have worked at several companies that have allowed me to put my hands on many different communications technologies. I have worked with LAN and WAN technologies, Security technologies, Telecommunications and phone systems (to include VoIP), as well as Satellite and microwave communications. I have worked in both commercial and government/military environments which has enhanced my experience as both sides do things differently. The further I move along in my career I am moving away from hands on and doing more project/people management which I enjoy. My current goals are to complete my CISSP. My long term goal is to start a company fulfilling IT contracts with the government and DoD. Specialties: I am currently concentrating my efforts on the security side of networking. I completed my Cisco Certified Security Professional (CCSP) certificaiton as well as my CISSP in June of 2011. I also have a good amount of experience with routing, switching, and network monitoring.
