I am an IT enthusiast! I love to explore and experiment with new technologies and systems. I trend towards server-based solutions. This site will be my exploration of the fun of setting up a Virtualized Home Lab.

I have been working in and around IT for most of the last 25 years. Most of my positions have been in IT Management or Cybersecurity. This past year, I’ve focused on earning several certifications to validate the experience I’ve gained that may or may not be on my resume. My current certifications are listed below.

I decided to invest in a robust HomeLab setup and work with new technologies to help retain current skills and gain new ones. I’m always interested in cybersecurity, but I’m really enjoying working with virtualization and containers.
