Hello World!

This is my first of many discussions on Vmware solutions , virtualization use cases and advancements and  the computing industry as a whole.

I am a long time veteran of VMware products starting with my first introduction professional introduction to the products in 2006 when the first VMware Server for Windows product was released free.

I built several use cases in the years following , deploying Vmware server 1.03 , Server 2.0 , ESXi 35 and Finally deploying ESXi 4.1 in production in July of 2010.

I lived in Florida for more than 32 years and developed most of my Vmware experience with PGT Industries, a window and door manufacturing company in Venice FL.

In 2013 I moved out to Denver,CO to provide better experiences for my family but continued to manage the environment remotely until 2015 when I had the opportunity to work with a small MSP in Denver. I gained a significant level of experience with evaluating and creating solutions for clients in the healthcare, retail as well as the oil and gas space.

In 2017, I returned to working with PGT to help manage and integrate some VMware sites that they acquired and have continued to help refresh and integrate those environments.

In 2018 I started to participate in the VMware community by answering questions in the VMware forum on This proved to be an interesting and challenging experience and I continue to frequent their forums.
I had also been a long time attendee of the VMUG local meetings since moving to Denver and took the chance to apply as a co-leader and have been volunteering time with that organization.
I applied for vExpert the same year and was granted my first star.

I have long been an advocate for the VMware learning program and have continually challenged myself to become and stay VCP certified. I first trained in 2011, then Certified in 2015 - VCP-DCV 5.

In 2017 I had to recertify and passed the 5.5 test

This year I have completed my renewal for the 2nd time and on the 6.5 test. I am currently VCP-DCV 2019 certified.

Thank you for visiting my blog, I hope to find useful content and discussions to post here.
