Profile

As a nationally recognized Red Hat Academy instructor I have been teaching the Linux operating system since 2008. Two of my courses have received Mesa Community College's Gold Star certification for instructional excellence. The Red Hat Enterprise Linux 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 can receive a discount on the Red Hat certification exams. The Amazon Web Services courses I teach use the official AWS curriculum and align with industry recognized AWS certifications. Students enrolled in my AWS courses are eligible to receive a discount voucher on AWS certification exams. In addition to teaching the Red Hat and AWS courses I am a Quality Matters Peer Reviewer and a certified Amazon Web Services instructor. In addition, I hold blockchain certificates of completion from MIT's Sloan School of Management and the University of Buffalo.
