I am a technology focused individual with a very diverse set of hobbies. By day I work at Des Moines University managing the VMware virtual environment; everything from the SAN to the guests. I am a VMware Certified Professional and a Cisco Certified Network Professional - I enjoy virtualization and networking because these technologies are constantly evolving challenging me to continue to learn more about them. In my free time, I train for endurance triathlon events and dabble in photography. I recently finished Iron Man Coeur d'Alene for the second time, an accomplishment I am quite proud of.
