About Me

/Who Am I

Roger is the dude at work who babysits the servers, check the backups, monitors the network and yes, the dude who replaces monitors. The dude who is into all things motorized. Cars, Motorcycles, Machines, Planes, Boats, it don’t matter. If it has engine, he will get involved. The dude who does the maintenance on the brand new car because he trusts no one. Well…. more like OCD to the point that he will go behind the tech so that he can sleep easy. The dude you call when you need that funky tool to change your brakes.

Roger started at the age of 10 turning wrenches and playing PC games. Known as the little wiz kid on the BBS’s because of his drive to write bat files to skip unwanted start-up programs from loading impacting dial up game performance. As the video games got boring, he turned his energy towards the lawn mower. How does this work, he asked? After studying the mower, he turned to the weed eater. Ok…. where is the motor oil located, he asked? After figuring out the difference between 4stroke and 2stroke, a GearHead was born. As for as the I.T. side, he attended college and was picked up by the I.T. team of the college. Being that it was a college, he had access to the latest and the greatest so he started testing out what he was learning. This drive landed him a position in the executive branch with in the college. Continuing to learn, he spawned into an engineer experienced in designing, implementing and administering client/server solutions using Microsoft Windows, Microsoft Server, SUSE Linux, NetWare, and Ubuntu. Experienced in designing, implementing, and securing data networks using SonicWall, Bluecoat, Internet Security and Acceleration Server, Contivity, Cisco Pix, and Cisco solutions. Also experience in monitoring data networks using ethereal, EMC S.M.A.R.T.S., eTrust IDS, NetQos, CiscoWorks LAN Management solutions.
