My name is Nick Reese and I am a Network Engineer for a large national retail company based in the midwest US. My past experience includes working with a variety of different vendor equipment from Cisco to Vyatta, A10, and F5 just to name a few. I have also dabbled a bit in a hybrid Network Engineer / DevOps role and was introduced to the ‘Infrastructure as Code’ way of things, which is quite fascinating. I enjoy scripting to automate tasks and have new interests in SDN & OpenStack. I currently reside in the Greater Chicago Area.

Aside from my professional life, I enjoy electronics programming/hacking, reading, amateur radio, and spending time with my family.
