When I tell people I am an Information Technology professional I’m often asked what that means or what I “do”.  To translate it into everyday terms “I help businesses use technology to be more productive”.  I have worked with computers since 1982 when I first used a Commodore PET.  Since then I have worked on PCs since DOS 3.3 and Windows 3.1, Apples since the IIe, and number of workstation or midrange computers running Sun Solaris, Ultrix, DEC OSF, HP-UX, SGI Irix, AIX, and Linux.  I have done system administration, network administration, storage management, security management and incident response for Fortune 50 companies and and government agencies.
