Welcome to my resume website. Please feel free to look around and get in touch if you have any questions.
As the senior systems administrator at the Tepper School of Business, it is always my goal to increase the security and reliability of Tepper managed servers, services, and endpoints. Throughout my time at Tepper, I have been able to implement enhanced monitoring of our systems (Nagios), increased the security of staff end-user systems by utilizing a management platform (MECM/JAMF), and continue to work within the Tepper School and with University partners on other projects.
I am a graduate of the University of Pittsburgh with a major in Information Sciences. While at the University of Pittsburgh, I took many classes in different areas of technology to gain a better understanding of all facets of technology. I focused on networking and security as my concentration to continue the education I had started at Forbes Road CTC. During the summer of 2016, I was an intern with UPMC's Network Operations Center. Throughout my time I Pitt, I also worked for the Katz Graduate School of Business as well as PEEL Laboratory. I also serve as a technical advisor to the Board of the Friends of the Pittsburgh Fisher House.
When not working, I enjoy photography, especially photographing nature and sports. I am a regularly local parks and on the side lines of athletic events at Carnegie Mellon. (Unless otherwise noted, all photographs on this site were taken by me).
