Full Biography

I've been in the IT field since I was 15. I used to use Apple 2 E's in grade school with 1.44 as i'm sure many of you have. First computer HP 33 MHz for 1400 bucks or maybe more. I was 8 at that time and AOL was the hottest things happening along with CompuServe/prodigy cd's in every book imaginable.

I'm taught by some great bosses over time and alot is trial and error. I have a huge interest in the IT world, CEH, Cyber Security, Network Admin ( Kind of my current job). When I start something if its an 8 hour thing then so be it. I like the challenge!

the community here is great and super helpful. TY for all your input.
