Greg survived 25+ years of Enterprise IT as a network engineer, architect and designer. Involved with a wide range of companies in gaming, online, finance, carriers, energy and other, he was a team member or leader that designed, built and deployed quite a few medium & large solutions for well known large companies. He was CCIE#6920 (and a bunch of others) but thats not relevant now.
With a multi-vendor focus from the start, he has worked with a wide range of vendors, their products and technologies. Which turned out pretty well if you are going to talk about them intelligently on a podcast every week but left him with a passion for predictable, stable solutions that he never got to experience in the real world.
He is well known for his Etherealmind technology blog since 2008, and has been a regular speaker & presenter at a wide range of industry events. For a dedicated technologist, he is surprisingly passionate and committed to treating people as humans that are profit-generating productivity tools instead of ‘fleshy robots as a cost centre’.
