Senior Engineer I, Team Lead

I have worked in the industry for over 13 years, supporting customers in the Federal space in Washington, D.C., and defending the network.  In addition I have experience installing, configuring, maintaining, and troubleshooting Cisco routers and switches, Cisco ASA Firewalls, as well as Aruba wireless. For about 7 years, I taught the Cisco Network Academy Classes at the local community college for CCNA and CCNP.

I am currently studying for the CCNP Security Core exam.

NetCraftsmen is a once in a lifetime company where people come first.  We consider each other family and support each other like family. This company is full of experts who are supportive and want to share their knowledge, as well as encourage their peers to further their knowledge, and develop skills in new areas.

In addition, we are all focused on being in tune with our clients and what they need, and with making sure they get exactly that.


My current client site is a dynamic and fast-paced environment, where I get to work with a fantastic group I feel lucky to call my team.


I love the outdoors and walking. I also enjoy gardening, building things, kayaking and camping, and I am a total foodie.
