I'm 20 years old and currently attending Fox Valley Technical College for Network and System Administration. Here, I'm learning critical skills I'll be using for the rest of my life.
In my early years, way before I took an interest in IT, I liked the idea of electricity and wiring. Having this early interest made an impression late in my life. I've been working with enterprise hardware (Juniper, Cisco, PaloAlto, Dell, HP, Supermicro) and Linux distributions like Ubuntu & CentOS for six years. Most of what I know has been through extensive trial and error in my home lab, which I take a lot of pride in, while I wouldn't recommend anyone else home-host. I've also had the pleasure to work alongside many great IT departments.Download CV
I have a wide range of skillsets in my belt. Below are some of my specialties.
This is generally how my pricing works. However, these rates may change depending on server count, time dedication, and job difficulty.
For less than one dollar a day, I can monitor your system's health and ensure all operations are running smoothly. However, the price of this plan increases with the server count.
I can do a wide range of things with Linux, see services page for more specific skills. This is my standard pricing for all things Linux.
I'm able to assist you with both the physical and virtual side of networking. I have experience with VLAN, LAG protocols, NAT, Port Forwarding, Static Routes, and more.
I can be your remote hands conducting work in your data center rack or cage. Currently, I only do hands-on work in the United States, pending passport.

Recently a handful of network engineers/devlopers and myself started creating a series of "patches" that prevent malicious Minecraft plugins from abusing host networking resources. For more information, or if you'd like to apply these patches to the Pterodactyl Panel, click here.
