My name is Rico and I am an eight (8) year veteran of the U.S. Marine Corps. I have worked within the IT industry since joining the Corps back in 2003 and I am currently employed as a Senior Systems Engineer in support of organizations within the Department of Defense (DoD). I operate Ether IT Consulting, LLC which provides technical training and consulting services to small businesses, Veteran’s Affairs, as well as schools in the Tampa Bay area. My core competencies are all based in virtualization; however, I am known to stray into other areas as I love learning how things work.
I once heard that luck is when preparation meets opportunity. You could say that I’m looking to increase the luck of “average” men and women who, like me, are interested in technology, but struggle with the jargon at first. Ultimately, my goal is to make technology more accessible.
