I am a System Administrator II at Clinical Reference Laboratory in Lenexa, KS.

I graduated from Southern Illinois University Carbondale with a Bachelor’s in Information Systems Technologies with a focus in networking and security. I currently work with AWS, F5, Splunk, OEL/RHEL Servers, and automation tools like Spinnaker, Jenkins, and Chef. My current position relies heavily on the “configuration-as-code” philosophy. My passion is networking and hardware, so in my spare time I work on my home lab with a pfSense firewall, a managed HP switch, a UniFi AP, and ProxMox. In the past, I have worked with Cisco devices, Palo Alto firewalls, ESXi, Active Directory, SCCM, and a variety of HP, Dell, and SuperMicro servers. When I step away from work and my home lab, I enjoy playing disc golf and watching college football.
