IMG_0942So you want to know more about me, huh?  Well, by trade, I’m a Technical Marketing Engineer (TME) at Cisco Systems who specializes in the Identity Services Engine (ISE) product and network security.  I’ve held CCNA and CCNP certifications, named Distinguished Speaker at Cisco Live and travel all over the world helping Cisco customers successfully deploy secure access networks involving ISE and TrustSec.  There are a couple popular guides I’ve written while at Cisco with the most notable being the Meraki and ISE Integration Guide.  Most of all, I’m an all-around IT geek who loves tinkering, prototyping and solving problems.

When I’m not acting as TME for Cisco, I have several other abilities which include: Pilot, Musician, Martial Artist, Marksman, Reloader, Writer, Editor, Astrophotographer, Chef.  Most importantly, I’m a husband and a father.
