^Picture Place holder

I’m Pre-Sales Systems Engineer based in Winnipeg, Manitoba Canada.  I’ve been in the IT business for 14 years with a broad range of IT experience, including senior technical roles for consulting companies and small to enterprise size companies with a range of different technologies.   I am currently a Systems Engineer for Cisco Canada supporting the mid-market in Manitoba and Saskatchewan.  I focused on assisting Canadian enterprises in building modern IT infrastructure across multiple IT disciplines with a primary focus around the Data-center, Virtualization, and Security.

I’m a IT enthusiast and over all tech nut.  Over the years I’ve become more involved in the IT communities and VMware community.  I feel teaching is one of the best ways to learn and help others.  I try to give back as much as possible to a industry and community that has offered me so much in my career over the years.  Some of my work can be found at www.virtualtiers.net where myself and others have built a VMware DCD simulator  and study pack to help others study for this exam.  This and some of my other community work has enabled me the honor of being a vExpert for three years(2014,2015,2016).  Once I got all my prerequisites I was also fortunate enough to attempt and pass my VCDX and landed #206.  An endless thanks goes out to my partner Shady who without his help this achievement could not of been possible.  One of the best partners anyone could ask for and an extremely dedicated professional.  It was during my studies that I ran into the vMusketeers and quickly found new friends and ended up here!
