36 years of IT bliss!

Started in 1983 on 8086 Unix systems
Forced to support Windows, Novell, Banyan Vines, OS/2 and Apple during the mid 90s mixed with Unix (Xenix, CTOS & Solaris).

Networks were once old X.25 framed networks to IP 4 & 6 now (pre & post Internet)

I've worked in military classified system NOCs, Fortune 100 (Charles Schwab IT Director) & INC. 500 data centers. Consulted a few gigs along the way...Dell, Toshiba & Phillips Medical as well as gigs around San Antonio for small to medium businesses.'

Held IT Manager, IT Director, Sysadmin, Network Admin, Security Officer and Network engineer titles as well. Titles don't mean squat.....stick time in the trenches sitting in the hot seat does!

Seen a lot through these years. Been a fun as heck ride too!

I'm charged with overseeing an INC. 500 firm now, with multiple locations throughout Texas with a fleet of 60 plus mobile workforce. 140 folks in the firm, scattered around Texas. I just hired IT number two, last May. Been holding this gig down single handily for roughly 5 years before I finally had to hire some help. We coined a bit over 20 million last year. Virtualized this place around 3 years ago...and ripped out an old Shoretel VoIP infrastructure, replacing it all with Cisco Business Edition 6000.
