Ian Hiddleston is a systems generalist with 7 years experience designing and running networks for a small ISP and managed services provider. He's been the lead network engineer on a couple PCI DSS audits. He's worked with Linux boxes since the early 2000's (Redhat Linux 7, not RHEL 7) but most of his experience in running systems has come from proving that it's not the networks fault.
Hiddleston is a firm believer that things that run beat theoretical purity and that the fastest way to find bugs is to say there aren't any. In his spare time, he dresses up in chainmail and hit people with swords.
