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 and CIS238RH courses I teach use the official Red Hat Academy curriculum which will help prepare you to pass the Red Hat RHCSA exam. As a Red Hat Academy our students receive a discount on the Red Hat certification exams.
