Welcome

Hello there. You found me.

I’m Dan, and I do many things. For over 10 years I’ve been an IT generalist. I’ve helped people reset their passwords, given advice on what hardware to purchase, managed budgets, mentored students, implemented projects and managed servers. Exchange, Server 2003 through 2012 R2, Active Directory, DNS/DHCP, SharePoint: These are the places I live, I know well. Mac OS? Check. Cisco managed network devices? IOS’d it (Cisco people understand). I did it all with a smile on my face. I love IT, and I love helping people use technology to work better, work faster and with fewer interruptions.

But while technology is where I’ve been my professional history, it’s not the only part of me. I write. There is a blog on this page somewhere, but it doesn’t get the attention it deserves. I’m an active freelancer on Clearvoice.com. Exclusive offers of opportunity are gladly accepted. I used to write for Examiner.com – those articles are now on the blog – and I miss it. Currently, my automotive related words are published to FutureMotoring.com. I also hold a Certificate of Technical Writing from Humber College.

Wait, there’s more! I’m also a passionate golf fan with dreams of someday attending the Masters. I have a passion for cars, clearly. You can find me on several social media sites, or by email. Music is my lifeblood: Harkening back to my days as an instrumentalist. I’m a father, husband, and Christ follower. Once upon a time I was a gamer. Now, as life progresses, I’m a casual gamer. However, I still enjoy moments with some of my favourite Xbox games, some of them with my kids.

Thanks for stopping by. Don’t be afraid to look around, or find out more about me.
