I’m just a guy with an interest in technology and serving the Lord. This blog is a place for me to post my musings and adventures. I would like to post entries in the hopes that things I’ve learned will help other people in their adventures (technological or otherwise).
My technical background is in Information Technology. I enjoy Cisco routers/switches, web servers (Apache and IIS), Linux and Windows OS, meshing wireless systems, VMware/Hyper-v and many other topics.
Interestingly, I’m not as excited about security. This is not to say I fight security, on the contrary I’m a big proponent of security. Rather, I just don’t want to be the guy in charge of security. That being said, in every role I’ve held, I do my best to keep the systems I’m responsible for up to the latest security standards. I work with PCI-DSS and SOC-1 compliance. …It just doesn’t get me out of bed in the morning to do it whereas I’ll do ANYTHING for a network problem to solve!
As to my personal life, I am married to the lovely Elissa. We were married in 2012 and it has been a whirlwind ever since! Lot’s of ups and downs, but quite an adventure for sure! Without a doubt the most growing and improving experience I’ve ever had. Thanks for doing this wild ride with me, honey!
Lastly, I am a born again Christian (Protestant). I really get excited about theology, especially predestination and election (I’m a Calvinist mostly). It is really important to me to be plugged into community and I attend a church here in southern California (Existence Church) to be involved in. Without a doubt the most important thing in my life is my walk with Jesus. However, I stumble and sometimes it isn’t the highest priority in my life. Take me as I am, a man learning to fall and trying to follow Jesus: the author and perfecter of my faith.
