The 2008 NPA Award Winner

I was honored this week to be awarded the Network Professional Association Professional Excellence and Innovation Award - Corporate Fortune X. The NPA is an association for professionals in Network Computing.

NPA – Advocate for the International Network Computing Professional The Network Professional Association (NPA) was founded (1993) to support the network computing professional and the ideals of an empowered, continually developing, professionally certified, educated and experienced IT practitioner. Among the objectives of the Association are to unite computer industry professionals throughout the world, to identify and meet the networking and career development needs of these professionals, and to identify and to meet their education and training requirements on their path to career growth.

The award was based on the work I have done with my team over the last year on network architecture standards, templates, and MPLS design. I want to thank the NPA for recognizing my work. I also want to thank my teammates for all their work over the last few years. The success I've had would not have been possible without their support and help. Thanks guys! Networking is a fantastic career and I love every day. It's not often you get to do what you love, do it well, and get recognized for it. :-D
