For the past 10 years, I have had the pleasure of working for the great educational institution of Fuller Theological Seminary. I have worked in many roles in the past decade, most recently in Windows Systems Administration, Virtualization and Storage Administration, Project Management, and as the Sr. Systems Administrator. They have given me every opportunity to explore enterprise IT, expand my skill set through training, conferences, workshops and user groups, and have nurtured my love for Social Media and the community surrounding IT by allowing me freedom to participate in various Field Days (thanks Gestalt IT, HP, Dell, SolarWinds, etc.!) as an independent blogger.
My team has been a fantastic source of encouragement and trust. Truly a second family.
However, it’s time to move in to what I feel is a natural progression both personally and professionally. I’ve really enjoyed engaging vendors, VARs, consultants and other IT professionals surrounding architecture and solutions and am very excited to announce that towards the end of May I will be joining the Solutions Team at Nexenta, Inc. as a Solutions Engineer. My role will initially be focused on their vCloud implementation and solutions, white papers, solving hard problems, and expanding from there.
It’s a big leap for me going from SysAdmin to working for a vendor, but I’m joining a great team (which includes friends Theron Conrey, Michael Lestchin, and Tom Howarth) for a product I’m really excited about.
It’s definitely bittersweet, but it’s the right move at the right time. I look forward to continuing the conversations.
Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have about 300 prodecures and systems to document before I leave.
