About Me

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 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.
  • I am married and have three young children.
  • Bachelors Degree in IT Network Administration from Western Governor's University.
  • Handful of certifications, including MCSA 2003/2008, Network+, Security+, Project+ and CCA XenApp 6.5.
  • Have been working professionally in IT since 2007.
  • Currently a Senior Systems Engineer in the financial services industry.
  • At my last company, I was the primary SME for multiple large Microsoft Remote Desktop Services 2012/2012 R2 environments, consisting of over 100 Session Host servers and 20 Virtualization Hosts.
  • I was previously responsible for our private cloud infrastructure, based on Microsoft Hyper-V 2012 R2 consisting of multiple Hyper-V clusters containing over 650 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!
