Systems Administration


My passion lies with Open Source and free software based systems such as Linux and it’s because of this that I am able to find solutions to long standing problems. Integration of Open Source technologies with closed source systems such as Windows is a particular interest of mine. As someone who invests a lot of time and energy into trying and learning new concepts and ideas, I have found myself on the forefront of some very engaging projects with various companies simply by putting my hand up and saying ‘yes’.
