I first started working in the field of data communications in Italy in 1980, developing embedded firmware for BSC2 based terminals. I worked in network product development until 1993, when I moved from the UK to Luxembourg. I currently work as consultant Network Administrator at one of the offices of the European Commission in Luxembourg.
I became CCNP in December 2000, and re-certified in October 2003 and again in June 2005. On 9th May 2008 I finally achieved my ambition is to qualify as CCIE, #20765. It was a tough certificate to win, and involved the sacrifice of many many weekends and evenings. It had taken me close on four years!
One of the main reasons I participate in the NetPro forum is that NetPro is a useful tool for exchanging ideas and experience. I see it as a great training tool, and as a way of assessing my technical skills.
