About Me

View my Blog

Hi I'm Steve, I am a passionate-about-technology 20 year old that's interested in software engineering, network engineering or even systems administration. On the programming side I have experience with Python, Java, and HTML. I also have a little home lab that I use to explore the world of network engineering... for fun; and I have a hands on understanding of Linux and Unix based operating systems since I run Debian and FreeBSD based servers.
