I started out as a retail manager in my twenties, but soon realized I wanted something more...something in the I/T realm. And computer networking always interested me more than any other area.
I initially studied to get some early certifications (A+, Network+ and CCNA) which allowed me to get a job in desktop support. From there I simply learned, asked questions and advanced as quickly as I could until I found myself working as a Senior Network Engineer and Designer for a major Fortune 500 information technology company.
As I learned and grew I always found it extremely fulfilling to teach those that were new to the industry to help them not only understand the technology, but to advance themselves as far as they wanted to go.
I lived in the State of Texas for 47 years, but have recently moved to the great state of Idaho to be closer to my wife's family.
I started this website with the intention to make networking easy - to simplify it to the most basic components and make it fun and easy to learn!
I'm glad you've decided to check out everything I have here and my sincere hope for you is if you're just starting out toward the networking field in I/T, that you check out all the videos and posts I've got for you on here, ask me questions, and advance faster than struggling on your own.
Here's to your success!
You've got a Goal in mind for where you want to go in the Computer Networking field. I want to help you reach it as fast and easily as possible!
Clint's Workshop helped me get started on passing my Network+ cert. Been following him ever since.
Ace Networker's training and courses helped me truly develop the experience and knowledge I needed to move into the career I wanted. He simplifies the complicated.
I'm currently a software engineer, but I began my own career/business in networking and what I learned from Ace Networker was the rocket boost I needed to really get my foot in the door.
