๐Ÿ‘‹ Hi there, Iโ€™m Josh ๐Ÿง”๐Ÿป! I live in beautiful Camarillo, California ๐ŸŒ… with my wife Whitnie ๐Ÿ‘ธ๐Ÿผ and my husky-mix Maya ๐Ÿ• (sheโ€™s the favicon!).

Iโ€™m a Senior Consultant for a technology consultancy company on their End User Computing (EUC) team. I really enjoy the challenge of problem solving and love being able to learn new things. Aside from working with some pretty awesome co-workers, I work with cool remote work and cloud technologies!

I graduated from California State University, Northridge (CSUN) with a B.S. in Business Management and an Information Systems Minor. During that time, I worked part time selling computers at the Buy More ๐Ÿ˜Ž. Realizing Iโ€™d rather be working with technology and not just selling it, I found a new job as a consultant.

The experience I gained working with enterprise technologies, led me to a full time help desk role after graduation. Always wanting to learn new things and not being afraid to take on new responsibilities, I ended up as Systems Engineer before looking to return to consulting. I missed using my knowledge and experience to help clients and have been happily doing that since.

Doing IT the Lazy Way

Iโ€™ve always enjoyed sharing knowledge and discussing my interests and felt a blog would be a great way to connect with and give back to others and the community. I donโ€™t expect to cover anything new or groundbreaking, but hopefully youโ€™ll find my posts useful if not at least interesting. Iโ€™m always open to ideas and feedback - good or bad.

The blog itself is built using Jekyll and hosted by GitHub Pages. No databases to maintain or security patches to install! Plus it gives me a reason to use the terminal and git.

Oh, yeah! Iโ€™m not actually lazy, although procrastination is real. Itโ€™s just a more interesting slogan than โ€œDoing IT the Efficient Wayโ€. When doing IT related work, if thereโ€™s a chance I could need to do something more than once, Iโ€™ll attempt to automate it. Iโ€™m really big on consistency and reproducibility and feel that the time invested up front pays off later. Plus it helps with documentation-And we all could be better at that, right?
