James Ott Jr

I have a true love and passion for technology. My degree is in Network Engineering and have had both formal and informal training for over 30 years. I have been in and around the industry since the late 1990's. Some of my previous employers include TYCO and IBM. I am currently the IT Administrator and Network Engineer for a federal contractor based out of Aberdeen, Maryland I am also the Owner, Network Engineer, and IT Consultant of PT Computer Repair based out of Dundalk, Maryland. Like many people today, I have a few technology hobbies. Currently, I spend most of my free time with mobile technology. Between tech moderating forums and developing Android apps, I have been keeping my hands very busy. Ethical Hacking has also become very popular with me lately. Preparing for my CEH has become a necessity as well as a passion.
