About Trevor


Trevor Sullivan - Rocky Mountain National Park 2013 (resized)

Hello! My name is Trevor Sullivan.

I have been working in the IT field since 2004, and am primarily self-taught. That means that I do not have a college degree, and I am quite proud to publicize that. I have a sincere passion for learning about all sorts of various technologies in the world of systems management and network infrastructure. Because I am self-taught, and have relied heavily on the various online communities (including Google) for support during my earlier years in IT, I feel very strongly about contributing back to the community, and sharing information freely with others. Blogging is one way that I can achieve that, followed by participation in e-mail mailing lists and online discussion forums.

Based on widespread community activities, on April 1st, 2014, I was awarded the Microsoft Most Valuable Professional (MVP) award for Microsoft Windows PowerShell. I’ve been awarded the Microsoft MVP award for Cloud & Data Center Management for three years consecutively, as of March 2017.


I’ve achieved the following certifications in late 2017.


Some of the technologies I work with include:

  • Amazon Web Services (AWS)
  • Microsoft Azure
  • Microsoft Windows Server Active Directory & Azure Active Directory
  • Microsoft Windows Server 2008/2012
  • Microsoft Windows 8.1
  • Microsoft Deployment Toolkit (MDT)
  • Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager (ConfigMgr)
  • Microsoft Windows Powershell
  • Microsoft VBscript (aka. Visual Basic Script or Windows Script Host)
  • Microsoft Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI)
  • Microsoft Public Key Infrastructure (PKI)
  • Microsoft SQL Server
  • Microsoft .NET Framework / C#
  • Intel vPro Technology (aka. Active Management Technology or AMT)

Of all the things that I do, I would probably have to say that I love coding the most. I love writing Powershell, or C# / .NET software that enables me to do things that I couldn’t do with the tools that are provided by default with many software packages. I love automation and monitoring, and solving problems with code.

My goal with this blog, my Twitter account (@pcgeek86), and other social media tools, is to create and distribute effective, high quality content, that is able to assist the members of the IT community. The purpose of my research and writing is not primarily for myself, but to help solve real-world problems that I find other people running into. The questions and discussion I see other people engaging in, are a significant influence on where I direct my time spent on research. The more discussion a topic gets, or the more questions I see in a focused area of technology, the more important I perceive this issue to the community as a whole.

I hope that this has given you a decent idea of who I am, and I hope that anything I post here will be helpful to the entire, growing online community. If a Google search turns up one of my blog posts that’s helpful to you, then I will be very glad that I took the time to write it. If you’re interested in contacting me, please e-mail me at pcgeek86@gmail.com. I am open to discussion or questions on various topics, including topics in the IT field or about photography.

I used to maintain an old blog on Google’s Blogger service, but I decided to switch to WordPress, since the tools seem better. The old blog address is: http://develnet.blogspot.com.

Thanks for reading,
Trevor Sullivan

    Hey Trevor,

    I have recently started development on automating SCCM tasks. I have seen some good things on your site so far, but it is far from comprehensive. Do you have any suggestions on where to go for a detailed guide on using PowerShell with SCCM, instead of using WMI commands?

    Hi Trevor! I must first say I find your blog very useful and I really like it. I’m writing a simple tutorial about ARM on github and im using one of your pictures. My question is, how do i reference your pictures correctly? I also have references to your blog. / Fabio
