I cover a bunch of stuff for F5’s Technical Marketing Team. After working in Professional Theatre for 10 years, I decided to change careers. Starting out with a small VAR selling Netopia routers and the Instant Internet box, I soon became one of the first six Internet Specialists for AT&T. From there, I moved to Verio to focus on access, IP security along with web hosting. Then a stint with Exodus with their two enormous datacenters in the Chicago area. I write, speak, train, along with reference architecture design and evangelism for F5. I've also been in such plays as The Glass Menagerie, All’s Well That Ends Well, Cinderella and others.
