With over 25 years of practical small business IT consulting experience. I am familiar with most operating systems and the equipment you might find in the typical small business environment. My areas of expertise include network design and administration, disaster recovery planning and implementation, workflow optimization in addition to break/fix. Some of the operating systems I am familiar with include Windows 3.x/95/98/ME/2000/XP/7/10. I am familiar with Windows Server 2003/2008/2012/2016/2019. I am familiar with macOS 10.4.x through macOS 11. While I’m most familiar with the Apple ecosystem, having used iOS devices since 2007, I can find my way around android devices as well. I am fairly proficient in Linux, having worked with various distress, including arch and most of the Debian fork. Debian 10 is my preferred operating system next to macOS.
I have a wide range of practical experience working on desktop computers dating back to the IBM AT/XT series and even some older! In the late 90’s I built a fair number of both business and gaming systems. Turning my focus to small business IT consulting in the early 2000’s, I standardized on Dell computers, mainly working with PowerEdge servers, Optiplex and Latitude business machines, and occasionally the Precision line. Configured and maintained properly, I’ve seen some of these machines operate for a decade in the production environment.
I know mail servers, I am familiar with Google G Suite, Microsoft Office365, in addition to various other free and open source (FOSS) software you probably work with on a regular basis. I always have an interest in learning new tech, so if I didn’t list it here, it doesn’t mean I have’t worked with it before.
I love to mess around with IoT devices as well as Raspberry Pi and Arduino projects.
