Introduction

Hi, I'm Andy, ITGuy. I'm a networking and security professional. I've been in the business for about 10 years now and have decided that I want to start blogging and see how it goes.

As I said I've been in IT for almost 10 years and most all of it has been in the financial sector. I took a short break for a year and went to work for a small consulting firm. I quickly decided to return to the world of financial IT. I still do consulting on the side, but I didn't like doing it for a living.

I'm in my second life as an IT geek. I started out in Youth Ministry and decided to change paths around the time I turned 30. It's hard being 30 and not knowing what you want to do when you grow up. I actually stumbled into IT by accident. Once I got here I knew where I wanted to be though.

I'm currently studying to take the CISSP exam. If life ever slows down enough for me to take the test. I had originally planned on taking it in May and now it looks like November, if I'm lucky.

That's enough about me for now. This is just a starting place. I'll move on from here to things that will hopefully be more interestering and will keep you coming back to see what I have to say about Networking and Security.
