RF Technician

I have worked in radio and networking for over 11 years as a military member. This experience includes working as a Tech Controller and Manager of a Network Operations Center (conducting end to end Quality Control testing of Analog and Digital circuits, trunks, and links), Radio repair technician, and SATCOM/Wide-band operator/maintainer.

My civilian background includes working as a bench testing RF Technician working with RF power supplies for lasers, Quality Engineering Aide (conducting forensic investigation of control electronic systems, testing & troubleshooting electronics systems, computer support, and technical writing) for Aircraft Control Systems, and Environmental Systems Technician (conducting preventative and corrective maintenance of visual landing systems, Power Conditioning Systems, Engine Generators, HVAC, Security Systems, and Fire Systems) in support of Air Traffic.

I first heard about Linux in 2002 from a friend whose father suggested that he learn it. He, of course, suggested that I learn it too. Unfortunately, it took me until I was laid off in 2007 and was forced to change majors from Electrical Engineering to Information Technology that I found myself in Mr. Schoemaker's UNIX/Linux class. I fell in love with Linux IMMEDIATELY!! Sadly, life isn't as easy as 1, 2, 3, and so I have been absent from the Linux world since 2009 and have not been able to hone my skills.

I now have an AAS in IT Networking Infrastructure and Security and am working on my BS in Information Security.

For many IT organizations, Linux is a mainstay for deploying Web servers and has evolved from handling basic file, print, and utility workloads to running mission-critical applications and databases, physically, virtually, and in the cloud. As Linux grows in importance in terms of value to the business, managing Linux environments to high standards of service quality — availability, security, and performance — becomes an essential requirement for business success.

White Paper
Private PaaS for the Agile Enterprise

If you already use virtualized infrastructure, you are well on your way to leveraging the power of the cloud. Virtualization offers the promise of limitless resources, but how do you manage that scalability when your DevOps team doesn’t scale? In today’s hypercompetitive markets, fast results can make a difference between leading the pack vs. obsolescence. Organizations need more benefits from cloud computing than just raw resources. They need agility, flexibility, convenience, ROI, and control.

Stackato private Platform-as-a-Service technology from ActiveState extends your private cloud infrastructure by creating a private PaaS to provide on-demand availability, flexibility, control, and ultimately, faster time-to-market for your enterprise.
