Hello World!

My name is Tom Murphy. I am an IT professional from the frozen tundra of Green Bay, WI. I've decided to create a personal blog in order to document and share some of the interesting things I come across working in the fast-paced world of Information Technology. I just took a position with a new company about six months ago, and looking back, I'm amazed at how much I've learned and grown in such a short span of time. I love the fast-paced nature of IT, and I especially love learning new things, which goes hand-in-hand with IT.

A little about myself.

  • Have lived in Green Bay most of my life.
  • Married to my wife Tracy, with two young children.
  • Associates Degree in Information Technology. Currently enrolled in an undergraduate program online, working towards a Bachelors Degree in IT Network Administration from Western Governor's University.
  • Handful of certifications, including MCSA 2003/2008, Network+, and CCA XenApp 6.5.
  • Have been working professionally in IT since 2007.
  • Currently a Server Analyst for a Fortune 500 energy company - primary responsibilities include remote access via Citrix XenApp and Microsoft Remote Desktop Services. I also am responsible for our private cloud infrastructure, based on Microsoft Hyper-V 2012 R2. We are hosting several clusters containing over 500 virtual servers, and around 1000 virtual desktops.
  • I also have a passion for PowerShell and automation. I am always trying to learn more about PowerShell, and how to utilize it to automate our workflows and support processes.

My journey in IT is still beginning, and I hope to use this blog to share some of the things I learn along the way, in hopes that others might find it useful. I'm not sure how often I will be posting, but I'll try to get an update out now and again. Also feel free to connect with me on LinkedIn. Enjoy!
