Living and working in Exeter, United Kingdom as a Senior IT Practitioner for The Met Office.

Love spending time playing around with new IT equipment and testing out its capabilities in my own home vmWare lab environment.

Have been working in IT for over 10 years, with a primary focus on Windows Active Directory management across Server 2003 through to 2012. This includes technical design and troubleshooting of DNS, GPO, and other linked technologies such as RHEL integration.

My own personal lab environment consists of three ESXi 5.5 systems, connected over a wide area network, each hosting several Windows and Linux based systems. Providing functionality of an AD managed domain, linked to Exchange 2013 and FreePBX for a unified, managed communications system.
