Open Source project(s) I'm involved with or passionate about: 
Linux Asterisk Clusters

I am currently an independent business and technology consultant, skilled Perl application developer, and a Linux system administrator with over 20 years of experience.

I am looking to join a company that believes that IT is a team sport. That understands that hardware, software, network, sysadmin, and project management are all interdependent and that we succeed or fail as a team. I want to find a team that collaborates, where I can learn new things as well as sharing my knowledge with others. That is the great thing about knowledge it is an unlimited resource, no matter how much you give away you always retain the same supply.

My primary focus has been in the following areas:
1. Business consulting and management
2. System architecture from the ground up of turn-key solutions (hardware, sysadmin, and application)
3. Designing and developing applications using Perl
5. Design and Development of custom combined VOIP and web systems
6. Large installation system design and administration (clustering solutions)

One Click, Universal Protection: Implementing Centralized Security Policies on Linux Systems

As Linux continues to play an ever increasing role in corporate data centers and institutions, ensuring the integrity and protection of these systems must be a priority. With 60% of the world's websites and an increasing share of organization's mission-critical workloads running on Linux, failing to stop malware and other advanced threats on Linux can increasingly impact an organization's reputation and bottom line.

Linux Backup and Recovery Webinar

Most companies incorporate backup procedures for critical data, which can be restored quickly if a loss occurs. However, fewer companies are prepared for catastrophic system failures, in which they lose all data, the entire operating system, applications, settings, patches and more, reducing their system(s) to “bare metal.” After all, before data can be restored to a system, there must be a system to restore it to.

In this one hour webinar, learn how to enhance your existing backup strategies for better disaster recovery preparedness using Storix System Backup Administrator (SBAdmin), a highly flexible bare-metal recovery solution for UNIX and Linux systems.
