There are many like it, but this one is mine.
I still haven't discovered what that is yet.
This is who I am, on a single page.
I'm a System Engineer with an MIS background.
My alma mater is the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.
I love networking, healthcare information systems, system architecture, high-performance computing, and my family.
I work with some pretty cool stuff.
And then there's my day job.
I work for a major healthcare IT firm managing next-generation healthcare infrastructure.
I'm fascinated by big, exotic, and often antiquated computer architectures.
I dabble in photography and graphic design.
A showcase of what makes me tick and what I find intriguing.
I love getting my hands on new or unusual things. From music to new camera lenses to old computers, I'm enamored with all things digital and artistic.
SGI, or Silicon Graphics, Inc., developed some of the most beautiful and powerful computers of the 90s. From the tiny blue toaster dubbed the O2 to the staggering array of racks that make up an Altix supercomputer, SGI products were catalysts for the computer graphics and scientific computing advancements of the last two decades. In SGI computers, function always followed form, but it was never far behind.
Like a few hundred million other people in the US, I'm an amateur photographer. My main kit is a Canon 60D-family body with a Sigma lens, and I shoot everything - candid shots, portraits, nature, and even events from time to time. I would say I'm moreso interested in the technical aspect of digital photography than the art of photography itself.
I'm currently Cisco certified and continuing to study networking. The next step in my journey is the CCNA Routing and Switching, followed by my end goal of the CCNP R+S.
Also, if you route cables like this, we need to have a talk.
I know my way around Korn and Bourne and have a knack for automating tedious tasks with a ksh script.
Drop me a line if you've got something to say.
