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.

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.
