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 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.
