My name is Chris Parks and I am an IT Professional with over 20 years of experience.  I live and work in NE Kansas.  I love technology, especially Apple, but of course work with alot of Microsoft products and services.  I thrive at implementing new technologies that make everyday processes and workflows easier for my co-workers and students.

Currently, I am titled Systems / Network Administrator at Highland Community College in Highland, KS.   The IT dept. is small (~5) so we all do a little of everything.  I administer the network from the external WAN connection through the firewall to the internal wired and wireless LAN.  I also oversee servers, both physical and virtual, and the telephony system.  I am the type of person that if I don’t know how to do something I research, learn and figure it out.

Personally, I am married and have kids that take up alot of time with sports.  I am originally from Massachusetts so I love the Red Sox, Celtics and Patriots.  I am a Scoutmaster for the local Boy Scout Troop, I like to listen to music and collect all kinds of sports memorabilia.
