Full Biography

I have had two professions in my life. My first, roofing, lasted for a day. It didn't take long for me to figure out that I would be a better fit in IT! 8 years in and I still think I made a good choice. :)

Over the years, I've transitioned from an intern focused on hardware issues to a desktop administrator that helps cover 5,500 machines remotely.

In my spare time, I run the blog, DeployHappiness.com
