I am a full-time Desktop Engineer and a part-time IT Consultant in the San Francisco Bay Area. I have been working in various areas of Information Technology for over 12 years, having done everything from web development, web design, software and hardware support, light programming, VIP user support, systems automation, and deployment engineering.
My current focus is on operating system deployment automation, primarily using tools such as SCCM, MDT, and PowerShell scripting on the Windows side, as well as Jamf Casper / Jamf Pro and bash scripting on the Mac side. My personal interest is in Windows architecture.
In addition to my full time career, I offer general IT consulting for small businesses in the San Francisco Bay area and Silicon Valley. You can read more about the consulting services and various other IT services I offer on the Consulting page.
I created the blog part of this website mainly to document various IT related things I come across such as bugs, quirks, workarounds, and useful scripts and techniques. I am a big fan of not reinventing the wheel, so I will only post things which I have not found elsewhere online and have been forced to come up with on my own.
I am also a fan of simplicity. I have found that most scripts or deployment methods found online are unnecessarily convoluted. I will not run any PowerShell script in my environment that I have not read line-by-line to verify exactly what it does, and some scripts I have found online can be 100 lines when the same result can be accomplished in 20 lines. I plan to post some of my simplified scripts here as well.
Feel free to contact me with any questions, suggestions, or blog sponsorship inquiries. You can also use the Questions page to ask me an IT related question, and if I have the time and knowledge I will answer it publicly as a blog post.
