Thanks for stopping by No Blinky Blinky! This is a blog that I created to share my experiences with technology, something I’m very passionate about.
You’re probably asking who “I” am right about now…
Well, my name is A.J. and I live in northern Vermont with my wife, two kids, and two cats. Professionally, I’m a Network Engineer with over 12 years of experience as an IT Professional. I’ve held various roles such as Help Desk Tech, Network Engineer, Systems and Network Administrator, IT Manager, Systems Engineer, and now Network Deployment Engineer. I’ve worked at various organizations in public and private sector, education, manufacturing, and professional services. Additionally, I’m an Adjunct Professor at Champlain College where I teach various IT courses in Systems Administration, Networking, Virtualization, and Information Security.
I studied IT at CCV and Champlain College, both located in Burlington, VT. I have my Associates in Computer Systems Management, a Bachelors in Networking and Information Security, and a Master of Science in Managing Innovation and Information Technology.
For certifications I have completed the VMware Certified Associate in Data Center Virtualization, and the CCNA Routing and Switching. I am currently pursing my CCDA, and then will begin working on my CCNP Route Switch.
In 2018 I was named a VMware vExpert, for the 2nd year in a row, for my work as a VMUG Leader in the Burlington, Vermont area. And in early 2019 I’ve been named Cisco Champion for the first time!
Again, thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy the blog!
