CCIE Routing & Switching #55949

My first CCIE ride ended Friday afternoon, 3-17 with a CCIE in R&S. The mission was complete on my 3rd attempt in 90 days. I want to give a shout out to my friend & lab partner in the trenches, Jonathan Norman. It was a true blessing to have experienced the journey with an engineer of your caliber. Also, my best friend and mentor, Kevin Day, CCIE #48358. Rob Riker, CCIE #50693, you were a huge help in my final months of prep. Mr. Brian McGahan too for taking the time to walk me through some very intense and difficult topics after class each day during my INE bootcamp. Katie Berdan for helping shift my bootcamp dates at the last minute and being there to have all of my concerns and questions immediately addressed. Perhaps most important, my biggest supporter, Mr. Chris Martinez for believing in me and backing the entire time. I've saved the best for last in thanking my Mom, Dad, and sister for believing in me and being patient with me as I devoted essentially ALL of my time to studying for over a year. Thank you all so much! INE, you guys rock!!
