If you’re like me, you rely on Google, blogs, and the general web at large to learn about new trends in the IT industry, research strategies and best practices, and discover solutions to complex problems. It is my goal to share with you the solutions, tricks, and general know-how that I discover and apply on a daily basis as a Windows Systems Administrator and generalist IT Professional so that I can, hopefully, make your day a little easier.
My name is Rick and began my career in the IT field in early 2005. Over the years I’ve been extremely privileged to work in very cutting edge environments where I’ve received mentoring from many incredibly hard-working and intelligent people. Originally from the Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania area of the U.S., I currently live near Baltimore, Maryland where I work as an IT consultant. After more than 7 years together, in 2012 I married the most amazing woman in the world who is both my best friend and an incredible source of inspiration, and who challenges me to be the best person I can be every day. In 2013 my wife earned her PhD in Epidemiology and is currently employed as a Senior Epidemiologist in the public sector.
