I’m an IT pro located in the Research Triangle Park area of North Carolina. I’ve spent my career supporting all flavors of Window operating systems from Windows 95 til today. I am proud to call myself a seasoned Active Directory Pro and PowerShell fanatic as well as a sysadmin who loves to solve problems in interesting ways. I have benefited so much from content and solutions provided by others over the years that I feel I am obligated to now give back to others who might be searching the web for solutions to problems they are facing. In the last eight months, I have created a blog that sees a decent amount of traffic, became the co-leader of the RTP PS user group, had a number of articles professionally published online. The highlight of my career has been to have contributed a chapter to the PowerShell Conference Book.

I am proud to say that I have started to make a presence for myself in the industry and have had the opportunity to share ideas with an amazing group of admins who share the same passion as I do for PowerShell. Last but not least, I serve as a mentor and teacher of PowerShell for my colleagues at work. I am nervous as hell to submitting this talk, but I believe that I can do it and willing to accept the risks and take that chance to put myself out there. It’s what I have been doing all of 2018 and it hasn’t let me down yet and I don’t expect this to be any different.
