About Me

I spend my days as an IT Solutions Architect for one of the largest education focused VAR/System Integration companies in the United States. In a previous life I was the lead IT systems engineer for the second largest school district in California. I blog about mostly work stuff, with the occasional random technology bit thrown in.

Past projects Include:

  • Rolled out 80,000 netbooks running Windows 7 for student use.
  • Leading Development of custom interfaces between SIS/ERP systems and Active Directory
  • Developing custom tools for managing Chromebooks across a variety of customer platforms
  • Linking ERP systems with Salesforce using Pentaho Community Edition
  • Custom MacOS UI scripting using Pashua and shell scripts
  • Linking Active Directory with cloud-based apps using ADFS and Azure AD (I really don't want to call it Entra ID)
  • Exchange 2010>2013 on-premises migration for 5,000+ mailboxes
  • Writing custom solutions using Salesforce Custom Objects, Flows and Apex Code
  • Implementing Salesforce Field Service Lightning
  • Writing Custom Data Integration Layer for Sage 100 ERP
  • Custom ETL jobs using Hitachi Vantara/Pentaho Data Integration Open Source Tools
  • Developing solution designs using Dell, HP and Lenovo servers and Cisco networking

Current Projects Include:

  • Finally getting my CCNA
  • Writing middleware to get systems to reluctantly communicate with eachother
  • Writing a fully-featured asset management solution
  • Finally getting my CISSP
  • Finding my next cool vacation spot
