I have for many years helped a lot of people I have known reach their goals, become more efficient and get what they want in life. 

To reach a much broader audience and ultimately help more people I teach here on udemy.

I have used the tips, tricks, and techniques from my courses for many years and they has enabled me to have a wonderful life.

As I grow and learn, I add to them, refine them, and make them work more and more in unison.

I have worked throughout my successful career primarily with IT and I have been lucky enough to work on some of the most exciting aspects of it. 

A long that path I have done amazing things, worked on some very cool projects and had truly inspiring colleagues, but the things I remember the fondest are the people I helped and the ones who helped me.

Some background: 
Throughout my life and career I have made a lot of lateral moves when up doesn’t look appealing, this has given me some great adventures and an amazing life. 

My resume:
Learning, and through that, growing both as a professional and as a person has always been something I have enjoyed a lot.
To find what I enjoy the most I have switched careers several times, some to something entirely new and some to a similar complimentary path.
It is always OK to switch paths (as long as you plan it out).

I have:

  • Owned my own businesses. 
  • Worked for political movements coordinating election and referendum campaigns.
  • Worked as a Network Administrator on the IP backbone of an entire country.
  • Worked on awesome projects at a large hospitals data center.
  • Worked as an IT manager at a large credit union.
  • And most recently again worked at a large hospital as an IT Project Manager.

With my love of learning, IT has been a good place to grow, there is so much to learn and it is always evolving. 

I hold a good deal of leading industry certifications and I am sure more are going to show themselves in the future.

My current list of valid certifications:

  • PMP: Project Management Professional
  • CISSP: Certified Information Systems Security Professional
  • CEH: Certified Ethical Hacker
  • SCP: SolarWinds Certified Professional
  • CompTIA Security+
  • CCNP: Cisco Certified Network Professional
  • CCNA: Cisco Certified Network Associate Routing/Switching.
  • CCNA Security: Cisco Certified Network Associate Security
  • CCENT: Cisco Certified Entry Networking Technician
  • 4011 Certified Recognition: Information Systems Security (INFOSEC) Professional
  • KCBS Certified Barbeque Judge <- by far the tastiest!

Some certifications I let lapse, when I am no longer interested in working in that line of work and they do not compliment what I want to do moving forward.
The ones I give up I don’t see as wasted at all, they got me to where I am now and I am grateful for that.

Mahalo nui loa (Thank you very much) for being here:
I hope you I can help you get ahead in life through my courses.
If you have any questions, suggestions, or things you think I can improve on, please post them on the course Q&A page (preferable, then other students with same question doesn’t have to ask it again) or send me a message here.
