What I Do
I've had experience managing linux based systems since 2010. I started off hosting an apache2 webserver and a minecraft server. Now I have experience with various server technologies, from virtualization to linux to databases.
I have experience with creating, troubleshooting, and fixing PHP code. I have experience interfacing with MySQL databases. I am also fluent in HTML/CSS markup. Some of my projects can be found over on my portfolio
I have recieved training in Cisco Networking and am currently self studying aiming for a CCNP certification. I fully understand the basics of computer networking as well as some of the advanced tehnologies.
I have experience fixing up my own computer equipment and optimizing it for my work, and I also help friends with their computer issues and I have offered computer repair to those people.
My freelance work has tought me how to maintain excelent relations with a customer and provide them with what they want in a timely matter. My freelance work has also strengthened my experience in all other aspects of my work.
Still a Student
More importantly, I am still a student! There will always be things I don't know, and I'm eager to learn things as they come up. My long term goal is a masters degree in computer science or engineering. I also enjoy learning through self study and through hobbies

From the home rack, I've been able to teach myself a lot about server hardware and software, vmWare, different Linux distros, various software (Namely Apache, PHP, MySQL, etc). I use the equipment I own currently to test out configurations before implementing them for live installations, to self-educate myself on various new technologies, and the such
