Service Description

No, it's not a typo on here, I have a degree in Wildlife Conservation. It makes for an interesting trivia point. Intelligent and motivated, I have taken what started as a hobby and taught myself the skills necessary to flourish in a career doing what I love.

I have provided IT support for small startups, world-class InfoSec research centers, large institutions with hundreds of thousands of users, and small cloud-based customers. My work, knowledge and skills all scale quite nicely. So whether you need something small on a single server or something that is fault tolerant and redundant in a clustered configuration, I can make that happen.

Let me put my years of skills, experience, and special attention to security to work for you. I can perform one-off work, long-term projects, and remote monitoring of servers/services.
