I worked in retail when I was younger, managing stores and people for 7 years. I stopped working retail to go to school at ITT Technical Institute in King of Prussia. My first job out of school was at Janney Montgomery Scott in Center City Philadelphia. I worked on their service desk for a year and half before moving to an MSP in Delaware County, where I expanded my IT experience. I regularly study the areas of IT I enjoy the most, which include Cisco networking and Windows server administration.
My family is my life. I married my wife in 2011 in Disney World, a day after our 10-year anniversary. We have a 21-month old daughter and a second baby on the way. We live just outside Philadelphia and spend nearly all of our free time together. Some of my hobbies include reading, watching movies, and playing tabletop games and classic video games. I grew up on Calvin and Hobbes, The Far Side, Nintendo, Ska, and Dungeons & Dragons. I’ve been an avid writer since high school. I’ve got piles of finished and unfinished stories, including two novels. One might even find my writing somewhere on the internet if one looked hard enough.
