About Me

Welcome to Revolution Wi-Fi, a blog where I share insights into wireless LAN technologies including industry news, technical knowledge, and network operations that are required in modern enterprise-class wireless networks.

This site is aimed at providing valuable resources and insights for wireless LAN engineers of all skill levels, technology managers, and enthusiasts wishing to keep abreast of the fast-paced world of wireless technologies.

I am currently in the Wi-Fi industry, where I serve as a customer advocate, evangelist, and industry expert. Previously, I was a Technical Architect Consultant at Target, Corporation, a Fortune 50 retail company, focusing on infrastructure strategy and architecture. I also held roles as a Senior Engineer and the technical team lead responsible for wireless LAN architecture, design, deployment, verification and troubleshooting of a large wireless LAN deployment. In addition, I collaborated with business partners to drive mobile solutions within our organization that improve business services, applications, operations, and efficiency for our guests and team members. Previously, I have worked in the K-12 education industry and have experience in both the education and retail vertical markets.

With over 13 years in the networking industry, I have extensive background in wireless, traditional routing & switching, security, server technologies, small data center management, IDS/IPS and various core services such as DNS, RADIUS, and directory services.

Above all, I am a Wi-Fi enthusiast. I am blessed by working in a field that I enjoy and have a true passion for.

Outside of work, I am an avid bicyclist and enjoy motorcycle riding, camping, hiking, reading (both technical publications and literature), and baseball. I enjoy the outdoors and travelling, two aspirations which my wife and I have made a priority in our life together.
