I am a passionate technology enthusiast with a particular interest in computer systems, and a great deal of experience with managing Linux systems, both servers and personal computers. Computers and particularly computer security and online privacy are my passions.
I have done a lot of advanced work with Linux systems, with a particular focus on the Debian GNU/Linux and Red Hat Enterprise Linux families. I have worked with servers running Debian, Ubuntu, Turnkey Linux, CentOS 7, CentOS 8 (may it rest in peace), Rocky Linux, and various Linux Desktop systems based on Debian and/or Ubuntu. Additionally, I have some experience with the pfSense and VyOS firewall/router systems, as well as Windows Server and Active Directory. In short, Cybersecurity and system administration are among my greatest passions, and I look forward to making them into my career.
