Hello! I am currently working as a Program/Account manager for an IT Consulting firm in Washington, DC. I live in Northern Virginia, but am originally from Portland, Oregon and still miss the West Coast.
I started my career as a technology instructor. I taught Microsoft and Cisco classes and started my own training company, which I operated for about five years. Loved every minute of it, but never got to the point where I could become a large business and step away from doing all things all the time. So I closed the school down and took a job as an Active Directory Architect in Washington, DC. That was in 2005.
Since then, I have done some very interesting projects and worked with interesting people. in 2011 I moved away from the technical side of things and over to the dark side: management. My goal is to someday be a CIO or similar position. I anticipate getting there will be quite a journey. This blog will help document that journey.
