I accepted a position as a Principal Network Monitoring Engineer with Oracle Corp. This is a significant step forward in my career. I found myself needing new challenges after spending eleven years in the cable industry. I am grateful to be a part of the cloud services team. And excited that I will bring decades of experience along with me in this new endeavor.
