I am Ethan Banks, the co-founder of Packet Pushers Interactive. I podcast about IT for architects & engineers on shows such as Heavy Networking and Day Two Cloud. I also create educational material forĀ Ignition, the Packet Pushers membership site.

I’ve been building data centers and grinding through the certification grist mill since 1995. I’ve been an MCSE, CNE, CCIE #20655, and more.

When I’m not sighing in despair from behind a keyboard, I’m probably hiking in the mountains.
