At work

I have worked at my workplace for nearly 30 years. Time goes by extremely fast! Over the years, I have held various jobs there: network technician, UNIX system administrator, Windows system administrator, etc.

I’m technically a network engineer, but I work on so many other things I’ve decided to start calling myself an infrastructure engineer.

I spend most of my day in terminal windows, vscode, Obsidian Notes and a web browser.

Stuff I currently work on regularly:

  • Programming: Python, JavaScript, Powershell, Ruby
  • Ansible and other automation tools and scripts.
  • Fortigate firewalls
  • Cisco routers and switches
  • Juniper switches
  • Cisco Unified and Aruba wireless (~900 WAPs deployed)
  • Gluing APIs together + data munging
  • Graylog (logging + dashboards)
  • Windows Servers
  • Active Directory
  • Microsoft Azure
  • Google Workspace (+ APIs)
  • RapidIdentity (not an expert, but can bang out good Action Sets)

Stuff I used to work on regularly:

  • Pentesting/red teaming on the side
  • SunOS and Solaris on SPARC and Intel platforms
  • FreeBSD and OpenBSD
  • Old, dead firewall platforms like Checkpoint, Cisco PIX and ASA :)
  • Java J2EE
  • Netscape Directory Server and OpenLDAP
  • C# for all kinds of stuff as well as ASP.NET development
  • Bunches of other stuff
