I'm a 30 something geek originally from Perth, Western Australia, now living in Vancouver, Canada. I've had a webpage online continuously since 1995. I have a fun homepage, but felt I should do something a bit more professional with this domain.
Geek wise, I do a lot of stuff. I have 10+ years experience with administrating Windows and Unix servers (debian, RedHat, Ubuntu, Slackware, Solaris, IRIX), 5+ years of hands-on Cisco administration, 10+ years of networking and fixing computers (hardware/software/mac/pc/sun). I have 8 years developing Web applications, using mainly Perl and PHP, but also C and even shell scripts. I know MySQL and Postgres pretty well, as well as generic SQL. I do security administration, analysis and penetration testing. I'm currently working in a vmware infrastructure role at a University, and I enjoy the collegiate atmosphere. Remarkably, I don't hate the students. They keep me grounded in what is important.>
As well as specialised University IT security, I'm really interested in designing and engineering networks and systems specially suited to provide service for higher education institutions.
