Who is this guy?

After a Google search brought you to silentinstallhq.com you’re probably thinking “Who is the guy that puts out tons of great content?” I’m a highly independent, creative, and self-motivated individual who does not conform to the status quo. I’m an Architect (INTJ) if you want to know what makes me tick. I do not have any fancy college degrees or the latest and greatest certifications. What I do have is 16+ years of application packaging, software deployment, and desktop automation experience in multiple enterprise environments. My background is in Systems Management Server (SMS), System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM), Microsoft Endpoint Configuration Manager (MECM), Configuration Manager (CM), ConfigMgr, or whatever new acronym Microsoft decides to change the product name to:) I love utilizing PowerShell to automate tasks! If you have an opportunity that seems like a great fit based on what you see here, feel free to reach out to me on my Contact Me page.
