I can’t believe it has been eight years… I wrote this article for TechRepublic while I was still working for IGS Security in Montreal.  These articles are the genesis of my career as a computer consultant and IT Trainer and Presenter. 

The first article tells of how and why I began to transition from a day job working as an in-house IT Professional for someone else’s company.  It follows some of my thought process and the steps I took to ensure I would not get fired before it was really time for me to move on.  Of course, when I wrote it I had no intention of moving on, it was simply the natural course of actions that took place.

Article on Balancing Consulting with a Day Job

The second article is about how I got my start as an IT Trainer… even before I was certified!  I started volunteering to teach computers a few hours every week at the YM-YWHA Computer Drop-In Centre in Montreal.  My old friend Gabriel Mekies put his heart and soul into that place, and I hope that my contributions helped!

Volunteering your IT experience pays off professionally and personally

It is weird to go back and find articles I wrote so many years ago… I was in a very different place in my life, both professionally and personally.  It is good to see though that I was on the right track, and that I have stuck with it!
