About Me

Welcome. My name is Greg Fletcher and this site is about me. I am currently working as a Network Administrator, in the process of completing a BS\MS in Computer Science and I'm based out of South Jersey.

I have worked in IT for the last 7 years supporting everything from desktops to datacenters. My most recent projects have focused around the planning and implementation of system/infrastructure integration related to merger and acquisition activity. I have primarily worked in the Windows AD environment but have experience with Apple, Android and Linux operating systems. I have worked with Cisco, Fortinet and Netgear network devices, along with others. My programming experiences is mostly Java based with some Powershell scripting and I have experience with HTML, CSS, JavaScript and most recently Python.

The combination of 7 years in IT and the degree work in Computer Science has given me a maybe not unique but interesting perspective on computer systems. Most people interact with computer systems through a preferred interface, picking and choosing OSs and applications and never changing. Always viewing the system through the same layer of abstraction. My career has forced me to move from system to system and take on a breadth of perspective from user to administrator to programmer, etc. And I love it, I love the challenge, I love learning and experiencing new things and I love solving problems across the spectrum.
