Guest Bio and links:

I'm a husband, a dad, and a recovering sysadmin. I've worked in technology since the year 2000, when I got my first tech job as Tier 1 support for cable modem companies. After that, I transitioned into systems & network administration, always with a security focus. In the last three years, I pivoted into security, focusing on Active Directory. When I'm not working, I enjoy cooking, drinking whiskey, lifting weights, traveling, reading... and writing code. Coding is like creating and solving little puzzles for yourself! So soothing.
