Network Engieer
San Antonio/Castroville/Hondo
I am from Baltimore, Maryland and joined the US Army when shortly after graduating high school. My job in the Army was Information Systems Operator. I have worked at many levels in information technology (I.T.) starting at a helpdesk, system administrator, domain administrator, firewall engineer, exchange administrator, and domain/enterprise administrator. I have been stationed station in the U.K., Mons, Belgium at NATO Supreme Headquarters Allied Powers Europe (S.H.A.P.E.), The US Army War College, Fort Sam Houston, and in South Korea. In my civilian career, I have been a network defense operator, worked in cyber operations, enterprise administrator, and currently a network engineer. In my off time, I am a merit badge counselor for Boy Scouts of America for Digital Technology and Cyber Safety. I am also a CyberPatriot coach for two high schools in the San Antonio area Medina Valley High School and Warren High School. I also teach the CyberGenrations cyber safety course for senior citizens.
I started mentoring at Medina Valley High School with the CyberPatriot program in 2014, and two years ago I became head coach for Medina Valley and started another team at Warren High School with the TX-20022nd AFJROTC. The CyberPatriot program is a national cyber defense program that was created by the Air Force Association a little more than a decade ago in the hopes of motivating school-aged youth to learn about cyber defense. The skills and knowledge the students will gain from participating in this program will give them the advantage to obtain information technology certifications, scholarships in computer-related fields of study, and ultimately provide an opportunity to start a great career in information technology and cybersecurity.
You can ask me anything cyber.
