Biography

I'm an IT Security professional with over 15 years experience in the field.

I've done cabling, desktop support, network design, server administration, long term consulting, infrastructure cleanup and more.

Probably the one system that I like working on above all others is Exchange/Outlook. I believe that those two products working together are Microsoft's crowning achievement.

I am currently in between jobs in Beaverton, Oregon.

I have over 16 years of experience in the field, having done everything from IT security, helpdesk/phone support to server support to administering phone systems. My last position was at Fiserv/Checkfree/Corillian where I worked for over 5 years. Before that, I worked for Tomlinson Zisko, a small (~10 attorney) law firm in Palo Alto that sadly no longer exists as a separate entity.

I have done everything from a complete upgrade of a network backbone, server admin, Windows PC support for desktops and laptops, maintained printers, oversaw installation of a new phone switch, deployed BlackBerry smart phones as well as BlackBerry Enterprise Server, moved a company from Exchange 5.5 to 2003, installed an automated tape backup system and many other things.

It's interesting to now be doing security for a company that has built it into their core business practices and processes as opposed to most businesses that do security almost as an afterthought.
