I have been working with GNU/Linux and other UNIX platforms for 12 years. I have a background in security systems and network infrastructure (data and telephony). I've taught courses at local community colleges on Hacking, Computer Security, Computer Forensics, Establishing VPN's, and in combating fraud. I tend to work for School Districts, Hospitals, and for other businesses with a humanitarian focus. I'm currently self-employed, and spend quite of bit of my time consulting - much of it spent working with GNU/Linux systems.

I work with a variety of distributions. Currently, I usually tell people the following:

  • Gentoo or Arch for Development work
  • Ubuntu for Newbies
  • Debian for Servers
  • And never-ever Fedora, SuSE, or Mandriva. :)

I've been told my desktop is pretty unique. Here is a screenshot. I run enlightenment e16.8, conky, aterm. I also occasionally use ratpoison.

I have been a member of TACLUG since 2002, and served on the TACLUG board at one point in time.

When left to my own devices, I tend to spend my spare time talking to office plants, eating glue from supply cabinet, and attempting to exterminate the weasels who have infested my pencil drawer.
