It all began four years ago in 2014 after flunking out of a college nursing program and much encouragement from "The Misc", Phil started his career in technology with a little company named EMC in their NOC/SOC. A believer of practice makes perfect and combined with an itch to tinker with technology, has led him to rebuild his lab environment multiple times in a never ending quest to make gains in technical knowledge and skills. Fast forward to now; he is working as a systems engineer in a cloud environment, learning new ways to monitor system and application health and automating day-to-day operations. He is your typical network engineer who got lost up in the clouds and won't come back down. He can be reached at this address for any questions.
