About

Who

Sean LaBrie is a Network Engineer living in Southern NH and working for Apogee IT Services, a Managed Services Provider with a location in Boston, MA. He’s been in the IT field since the late 90’s doing everything from Break/Fix, Helpdesk, Field Engineering, Project Management and finally ending up in his current position with Apogee.  Sean holds current Microsoft, Cisco, VMWare, Citrix, Sonicwall, & CompTIA certifications, but doesn’t take them, or himself, too seriously.

When

Sean stated as a lowly PC repair tech at one of the neighborhood big box stores back in 1998. After college and his first round of Cisco exams, he took a job with a SMB IT company in Seabrook, NH. He became Microsoft MCSA Certified, and collected a handful of CompTIA certifications. He later took a project management position in a healthcare IT company in Manchester, NH. Sean finished his MCSE there, but eventually would take up a job in Boston, MA starting in 2007.  In Boston Sean renewed his Cisco certifications and upgraded his MCSE to MCITP on Server 2008.

Where

Sean has worked mostly in New Hampshire and Massachusetts, and frequently in the greater New England area, but has completed IT projects in 28 states. You can currently find him in Boston, MA during the week, and Dover, NH on the weekends.

Why

This blog was started for a few reasons, but the big ones are these: A place to start dumping knowledge in a searchable way, a way to share with the IT community all the things that Sean’s been able to piece together from other sources such as blogs, websites, books, and personal research; and finally as shameless self advertisement. Do you have an IT company that you’re tired of? Internal IT or Help Desk staff jerking your company around?
