I make things work together
Introduction
Inventor, Florida Cisco Engineer (CCNP, CCNA Security, CCDA, CCIE candidate), and Technology Architect who finds Zen in the optimal algorithm, rubber chickens, and referring to himself in the third person. In 2013 I joined the Cisco Champion program and was invited to write articles as a guest blogger. 

-- Anecdote -- 

A samurai once asked Zen Master Hakuin where he would go after he died.

Hakuin answered, 'How am I supposed to know?'

'How do you not know? You're a Zen master!' exclaimed the samurai.

'Yes, but not a dead one,' Hakuin answered.

-- about --

I am an expert technology troubleshooter with veteran specialties in Network Design ( Cisco biased ), VoIP and Linux. I believe that many technology problems can be fixed by doing less. Complex solutions require complex management and should only be used to solve 'outage' conditions.

Going on three decades of inter-networked computer experience from ATDT to IPv6. Communication and processes whether machine or human can rarely be understood by stopping them and analyzing the parts. Instead it is better to flow with them and adjust the whole.

Reasonably proficient: security, DNS, Internet visibility, and photography.

Non-proficient: drawing, musical instruments, and telling people what they want to hear.

This is our favorite Mexican food we have found in Broward. It's not quite the Mexican food I remember growing up in California, but best I have found.

I wish I had visited this place sooner along with Wakodahatchee also nearby. So many birds and wonderful boardwalks to keep a bit of distance from the alligators :)
