Profile

As a nationally recognized Red Hat Academy instructor I have been teaching the Linux operating system since 2008. In 2009 I was a contributing author to The Command Line for GNU Press and have served as a subject matter expert for other publishers. Two of my courses have received Mesa Community College's Gold Star certification for instructional excellence. The CIS126RH, CIS238RH and CIS240RH courses I teach use the official Red Hat Academy curriculum which will help prepare you to pass the Red Hat RHCSA and RHCE exams. As a Red Hat Academy MCC students receive a discount on the Red Hat certification exams. In addition to teaching the Red Hat curriculum I am a certified Amazon Web Services instructor and teach two cloud computing courses aligned with AWS certifications. I hold blockchain certificates of completions from MIT's Sloan School of Management and the University of Buffalo. Most of my classes can be attended online so it is not necessary to come to the campus.
