Growing up a nerd, I always loved computers and oftern found a way to have my hands in things. In high school I assisted the school with their needs and built my first set of business cards! Early in 1996 I landed a job doing helpdesk in Mechanicsburg. What a door that would open, and from there I ended up working in Systems Integration for what was then the areas premeir consulting firm. Eventually I ended up as an IT manager for that company.
Begain studying for my Certified Network Engineer (CNA) through ADT Data Systems in 1995.
In the fall of 1996 got a job working for ADT Data Systems.
