Hello there- my name is Alex. I consider myself a jack of all trades, master of some. I’ve been passionate about technology since the Power Macintosh 6100 and Ubuntu 6.06 days- pretty sure I was the only kid with a server pieced together from spare parts in my room at my highschool.
Currently, I work at Ithaca College, keeping computers safe.
Previously I worked on technology platforms for Vervology LLC. I was a systems engineer at Crouse Hospital. Before that I made WordPress work at enterprise scale at Syracuse University as a senior platform architect.
Some of my interests outside the 9-5:
- the great outdoors.
- making and breaking
- vintage technology
- WFTDA flat track women’s roller derby- I do tech stuff for Salt City Roller Derby, which gets me some interesting experience in live video streaming/production.
- Psychological First Aid: A Minnesota Community Supported Model (Jan 2022, University of Minnesota PubH X327)
- Movement, Pivoting, and Persistence for Pentesters and Ethical Hackers (Sep 2021, TCM Security)
