About Me

Welcome to the home of Network Wizkid. Many of you may already know me from Twitter and YouTube however if you’ve not come across me before then allow me to introduce myself.

The intention of my work is to educate, inspire, motivate and mentor those that have an interest in Information Technology and I also want to share what I have learned and experienced in my career.

This website is intended to serve as a knowledge base for me as well as provide useful information to those that are interested in the content that I share. I focus predominately on Cisco security-related technologies but you can occasionally find content about other vendors and technologies.

I hope that you enjoy the content and please feel free to follow, subscribe and re-share.
