I look mean but I am actually even meaner in real life. JK.

OK, so I am not a traditional “builder” and this is a reference to Game of Thrones, but it fits because I like to build PowerShell tools.

After several years as a system administrator, I took the plunge into command line interfaces, most notably PowerShell. Like many others, I used to prefer a GUI for managing Windows, but after learning PowerShell that is no longer the case.

My area of expertise is in Windows server, VMware, PowerShell, package management and generally automating anything. My passion is to create solutions to difficult problems in the form of code. I am also impartial to Windows as I see Linux as a fantastic OS.

My goal here is to give back to the IT community what it gave to me over the years; knowledge.

In addition to being an Ops guy, I am a husband, and Father. Oh and I am also a technical author for 4Sysops, Tom’s IT Pro and any other site that wants to pay me for the written word.
