I have worked with Cisco equipment for 20 years. I've designed and supported small to large networks, as well as taught many Cisco courses. (I'm CCSI #94069 and originally certified in 1994). My background is primarily Route and Switch and my interests include security and VPN technology. Originally, I started reading and posting to network forums as one mechanism to help me ramp up for my CCIE certification (#4615 which I earned in 1999). Now I use the forums to help keep me sharp in various technical areas as well as to help others. I like contributing, and I find I can answer a bunch of the questions quickly. For the 'harder' questions, I personally get a great deal of satisfaction from digging into topics that I haven't refreshed on for awhile. I really enjoy working for Chesapeake Netcraftsmen, they are a great group of fun and smart people (including 10 CCIEs). We have consulting and training expertise in high-end routing and design, switching, VoIP, QoS, MPLS, network management, security, IP multicast, course and lab development, and other areas.
