My motto is you never know until you do. Never be afraid to ask questions or to learn. With patience and creativity no subject it out of your reach.

Having been in the technology field for 20+ years, I understand the frustration of reading about a topic several times over and still not quite understanding it.

My motto is you never know until you do. Never be afraid to ask questions or to learn. With patience and creativity no subject it out of your reach.

Having been in the technology field for 20+ years, I understand the frustration of reading about a topic several times over and still not quite understanding it. Or those "I don't get why this is not working" thoughts after putting hours of commitment into a project. Because of my own experiences, I stay empathetic to the frustrations that others have when dealing with a technical issue.

Throughout my career, I have hosted several corporate presentations for clients and in-house training where I was the key or guest speaker. I have been the subject matter expert (SME) for many subjects, such as digital security, Python, Linux, VMWare, Docker, Microsoft technologies, Powershell, networking, and Voice over IP (VoIP). The range of students I have helped were both people brand new to the subject and advanced students, who either wanted to polish or extend their skillset.

The certifications I have earned CCNA, CCNA Voice, Cisco Security Ninja, VMWare's VCP, Network+, A+, and Microsoft's MCITP.

Technologies I have been working within the last 5 years Cisco Networking (Route & Switch), Firewalls (pfSense), Python development, Bash Scripting, SQL Statements, Database scheme design (Postgres, MySQL, Microsoft SQL, & Informix), No-SQL (MongoDB), Linux Distros (Alpine, Ubuntu, & CentOS), Docker and Docker-compose, Vagrant, Hypervisors Type 1+2 (VMWare and Virtualbox).

It takes a lot of different technologies to make your techno-dreams come true. Professionally I have utilized all these skillsets to produce solutions for customers

As a tutor, my job is to help bridge that gap and help shed light on what you need to know to get where you are going.

Great tutor, knowledgeable and interactive

Kevin helped me out with BGP protocols and the syntax that I was having trouble setting up. Very thorough and professional. I would highly recommend to anyone in the networking realm.

Doug, 1 lesson with Kevin

Helpful for trouble shooting and explaining Docker images.

Learning Docker can be a pain. Save hours of work, ask some clarifying questions to Kevin so you can move on. Kevin is experienced and knowledgeable. The experience was helpful in my task to create docker images for a udemy course.

Allen, 1 lesson with Kevin

Friendly and Amazing

Kevin really made a difference in me solving a couple problems I was stuck on. He was very friendly, fun to work with, and was easy to talk to. I highly recommend him! And I will be reaching out again in the near future!

Mr.Singh

Experienced, Patient and Extremely Easy To Learn From

It's very hard to find someone who is knowledgeable with Docker, containerization and Jenkins. It's even harder to find someone who can explain how it works and how to implement them correctly and couldn't have found a better tutor than Kevin. He's very patient and makes the lesson fun and also provides you shortcuts and tips to help make things faster and simpler. Will definitely be taking lessons from Kevin again soon; always open to spread his knowledge as well as answer any questions you may have. Thanks Kevin!

James, 2 lessons with Kevin

Very knowledgeable guide

I needed help with a complex configuration and Kevin really helped me out and got my docker image working! Highly recommend Kevin to anyone looking for help with a Devops project or tasks.

Dj, 1 lesson with Kevin

smart and quick

He knows what is going on from the first sight. He could take a look where I’m struggling and he could provide help with it.

Aziz, 1 lesson with Kevin

Knowledgeable, Very helpful

I've been having issues with 'while' loops and he boiled the issues down to a simple misunderstanding. Then he showed me a proper way to use the loop. If you get a chance to work with him I recommend it.

Steven, 2 lessons with Kevin

Understands a wide range of networking

Kevin was able to help me understand my obstacles in a short period of time. He used diagrams and analogies to help me sort through my blocks and get me back on the right path for my networking goals. Thanks, Kevin.
