Still serving in the Marine Corps trying to attain 5 certs this CY. NET+, SEC+, CySA+, LINUX ESSENTIALS, PENTEST+. I am a Data Systems Administrator with roughly a year of experience but what I have done best so far is managing a HelpDesk for 700+ users with just under 6 Marines that are mine to task out. I'm seeking out further education and projects to build a portfolio so I can better market myself and expand my skills. I learn very slow and I like to do one thing over and over and over again until I am sure I've got it right. Amateurs practice till they get it right while professionals practice until they can't get it wrong. I want to be professional. Please help me!
