About Me

As the systems administrator at the Tepper School of Business, it is always my goal to increase the security and reliability of Tepper managed servers and services. 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 (SCCM/JAMF), and continue to work within the Tepper School and with University partners on other projects, including the migration of all of our staff and a number of our faculty to Google Workspace from Exchange on-premise.

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 sides 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 nature photography and sports photography. I regularly photograph nature at local parks and athletic events at Carnegie Mellon.
