I got my start in IT administrating an Oracle 10g database on Red Hat Linux. I've come a long way since and have used Linux everyday since 2012 both personally and professionally. As an independent consultant, I'm currently responsible for no less than forty Oracle databases running on Windows and Red Hat Servers. Perhaps the only thing I love almost as much as Linux is the Cloud and the many opportunities it provides. Linux has opened a lot of doors for me, and teaching it is my favorite pastime.
