About Me

I'm an experienced network engineer (12 years!) with industry knowledge spanning wireless, software defined networking, and data center infrastructure. I've also done extensive traveling throughout the USA and a bit of international travel as well (Canada, Mexico, and New Zealand). I love to write about the following topics:

I've written opinion pieces for TheLatest, a news aggregator and blog, and I also write book reviews for the American Library Association. I've recently taken on some freelance content writing as well. I truly enjoy putting together my thoughts on paper--I even like writing documentation at work!

My Writing Samples

The Enigma Machine

This device was used by Germans during WWII to send encrypted messages. Once it was cracked, the Allies were able to decode all of their messages. I got to see one up close and personal.

The pastry of pastizzi was my favorite growing up. I explain how to make the pastry, filling, and how to shape and bake them. They're addicting!
