Hi, I’m Kevin!

I’m a technology enthusiast based out of Cincinnati, Ohio. I tend to specialize in Linux and cloud systems, though I’ve also done some interesting things with networking, VoIP, programming, and even Active Directory.

I used to run Linux on my desktop and laptop systems, but I converted to macOS about 10 years ago. I found that it combined a compelling graphical desktop with all the UNIX under pinnings I need. Shortly afterward, I realized how I could get apps that worked more or less seamlessly across my MacBook and iPhone, and I’ve been using Apple hardware ever since. (I do run Linux - specifically Fedora - on all my home lab hardware, though.)

Apart from tinkering with technology, I also enjoy being outdoors. Depending on the day, that could mean hiking, walking my dog, or riding one of my motorcycles.
