I have been working with technology in some way or another ever since my high school days. After attaining my bachelor’s degree in computer science, I spent over a decade in IT working on anything from fixing printers to engineering enterprise IT systems. I now have the privileged of sharing my expertise as a Linux Training Architect for Linux Academy. When I am not sitting behind a terminal, I like going on holiday and spending time with my family.
