This is a blog about Information Technology (IT), weird bikes, and other random topics. I try my best to cover things that are not covered elsewhere (but I deviate on occasion).

I consider myself to be a customer-oriented jack of many IT trades, who enjoys architecting, deploying and supporting solutions to facilitate research, administrative processes, and other business operations. My IT experience in Albuquerque, New Mexico spans various industries (government, healthcare, higher education, military/aerospace, Fortune 500) and various functions.

My favorite technologies (and interests) include 2-factor authentication, Amazon Web Services, cPanel/WHM, F5 (LTM and APM), Hugo, Jamf, Microsoft Office 365, SCCM, scripting (Bash, JavaScript, PHP, PowerShell), and Windows. I also enjoy business / technical writing and data analysis of all types (Excel, Splunk, Cherwell Searches/Widgets/Dashboards, etc.).

In my free time, I enjoy riding weird bikes (outdoor elliptical, kick bike), longboarding, swimming, blogging, volunteering with Junior Achievement and jamming on the Cajon (percussion).
