Making it easy for customers to secure what they do in the cloud!

Hemet, California

I am passionate about technology and sharing what I know with the networking community. At Riverbed I lead the Technical Evangelist Team to help build public awareness of our NPM, Application Acceleration and SD-WAN solutions.

In my previous role as a Technical Evangelist I led a program of enablement for over 300 SE's globally, delivered high-impact live demonstrations, and created video and written technical content.

Formerly, as the President and CEO at Global Config Technology Solutions, Inc, I focused on delivering technical content and course development as well as providing video training services.

I've personally run several blogs, and wrote for TechRepublic, Tech Target, and several other online publications.

My Technical competencies include Firewalls, Cisco IOS, PIX, ASA, and FWSM, MPF, IPSec, IOS Firewall Technologies, Layer2/3 Attack mitigation, Identity Management, NAC, ACS and Cisco ISE.

I possess multi-vendor knowledge including SDN and emerging technologies.

In the past I have been a CCIE Security Instructor with INE as well as IPexpert, providing network training and courseware development. I've also filled the role of CTO for Ascolta, where I lead the vision of IT and the services it provides within the organization and served internal and external customers.

I have taught a number of Technical courses at the CCIE Security level as well as Cisco Certified Courses as part of the Cisco Learning Partner Program. Former CCSI #23097/

I have developed several training courses for Cisco.

I am published by Cisco Press / Pearson Education in the area of Network Security.
