Past: finished high school in 2010 (still a young'n).

Present: I work as the IT manager for a major floral distributor that ships all over the country, as well as Canada (if you see sunflowers in a store, they're probably ours!).  My duties mainly consist of systems administrator-type stuff for PCs, printers, and phones; eCommerce service support; as well as coordinating the efforts of our contract IT guys (network administrator, webmaster, ERP developer, telecomm engineer).

Since we're a "small business" (~200 people; ~50 user environment), I'm also the "go-to" guy for other items that aren't normally IT related: security and camera systems, time clock systems, fire alarms, etc.

I don't have any certs or degrees yet, but I'm workin' on 'em!  I'd like to pursue something information systems-related in college, and either continue on down this path, or try and use these experiences to jump into law enforcement.

Bored, so I might as well add to this one…
