A computer graphics instructor dubbed me "The Nodemaster" in the mid 90's while studying Computer Art and Animation. Whenever he was unable to answer a question, he would direct my classmates to ask "The Nodemaster." As a fortunate coincidence, the name continued to fit as my career took me from multimedia design to server administration and networking.
I became an IT professional in 1997. Moved from graphics and interface design into web design and server administration. Realizing aptitude and enjoyment for troubleshooting, decided on career in systems administration, network design, and network administration. After graduating Basic Law Enforcement Training (BLET), I began applying my knowledge and skills in Information Technology to the world of Criminal Justice. Since 2011 I have worked full-time as a Defense Contractor, while investigating computer-related crimes and processing electronic evidence as a sworn Deputy Sheriff.
