Tireless, highly service-oriented IT Specialist. Runs on Italian food. Loves to share. Not afraid of heights.


Hi there! My name is JD, and I'm a sysadmin and network wookiee based in the Philippines. I've been in the industry for over 15 years and have built a successful business providing independent consulting and support services to businesses in all three regions, most of them located in Cebu, Manila, Davao and Negros Island.

I specialize in designing and architecting enterprise-level network and system deployments, with a primary focus on Data Centers and ISPs. Furthermore, I'm an opportunistic perfectionist and always strive to deliver the best results for my clients.

Yes, I do enjoy snacking on chili flakes, but let's move on from that topic. (Date: 2021, Location: Home Office)

I have a strong background in technical operations and over 15 years of experience in the field of networking and systems engineering, as a practitioner, educator and instructor. I'm also a security enthusiast and advocate for free and open source software. Likewise, I founded Immerse Networks Limited, an HK-based company that provides independent consulting, support, and training services to international clients as well.

I'm passionate about training and helping my clients grow their digital empires. If you're looking to improve your network and systems infrastructure anywhere in the world, I'd be happy to help!
