Ricky officially started in IT in 2005, in the Marine Corps, but has tinkered with computers all his life. He started early, playing and messing with networks in High School. Most of what he knows is self-taught, but he has some formal training, mainly in the Marines. These classes include networking, server planning and management, and some certification training.
Ricky is a people person; he loves server cutovers because he’s usually there with someone else. “I feel like real bonds are formed at 2AM waiting for large data transfers to complete. It’s fun to just interact with people in that environment.”
