Experienced and driven Windows Architect. I am passionate about what I do and have an extensive background in Systems Management (SMS/SCCM 2012/2007/MDT), Advanced OS Deployment automation (XP/Windows 7/Windows 8), automated software delivery and infrastructure automation scripting.

With over 13+ year in IT, I have developed and implemented client management solutions that dramatically reduce the required support costs and ultimately bring a stable and well managed operating environment for enhanced end user experience and increased productivity.

Specialties: Advanced OS deployment automation, System Center Configuration Manager 2012/2007 SP2/R3 (SCCM), Microsoft Deployment Toolkit (MDT), Application automation and scripting (Wise Package Studio/Microsoft App-V), System Center 2012 Orchestrator, Group Policy Management (including AGPM), Microsoft Patch Management (SCCM/WSUS), Scripting (PowerShell, VB, Batch), Hardware evaluation and standardization, Managing vendor relationships.

In my personal life: I have been married to my middle school sweetheart since 1997 who teaches High School Special Education while being the glue that holds our household together. We have two beautiful children who as any parent knows, keep us on our toes. I enjoy playing guitar with friends, camping, floating (separately and together), watching scary movies (with my son, still working on my daughter), and online gaming. I am a geek at heart and luckily my wife and children embrace that aspect of me. 🙂

I started this site as an online repository for things I have learned or encountered throughout the years that I will likely need to reference again in the future. Hopefully some of this information will prove useful to others in the community.
