About Phil...

I am Phil Williams.  My wife, Amy, and I live with most of our 6 children.  We have one son that has left the nest and another close behind him.  We have 4 biological children and 2 adopted children with special needs.  We also have 3 dogs which include 2 Siberian Huskies and 1 Anatolian Shepherd / Great Pyrenees mix.  I work as a sales engineer with a software vendor in the Bay Area supporting DoD customers across the States while living in Tennessee.

I have been a geek for years and I love many aspects of technology. When I was young, I tinkered with computers and I grew to love gaming.  Most of my time now is spent raising a family and handling the issues of life, but I also like to work on projects in my home lab.  I enjoy figuring out how to make networks perform at peak efficiency and securing them from internal and external threats.  Over the last 20+ years,  I have worked in commercial network performance roles, DoD contractor engineering roles, and led teams performing engineering tasks.
