WhyCantI - Pablo

About Me!

My name is Paul, but everyone calls me Pablo, thanks to my late father-n-law, Steve!

Personal Life

My wife and I will be married for 18 years this October. We met in high school but didn’t get together until after I graduated.

We have 2 awesome kids that are damn near grown, or think they are at least!

We moved 2 hours outside of Houston to a small town in the country called Woodville where we’re playing Monopoly and trying to collect as many properties as we can.

In my personal time I run a CNC machine and 3D printers, and we’re in the process of standing up 3 wood art galleries in different restaurants around town.

I’ve also built a website for one of those restaurants and about to build another for the other restaurants soon.

Work Life

I’ve been in IT since 2006 and have experience with a number of different technologies. If you’d like to see my skillset, please keep reading! They are, but likely not limited to:


-Software and processes scripting to deploy from USB, local file shares, Automate, Datto, Intune, etc…

(AutoCAD/Revit/FabricationMEP/Navisworks/Land FX, Adobe, Bluebeam, Google Chrome/Earth, Firefox, Office, ArcGIS, registry settings, etc… Basically anything that can be scripted to free up time and make things easier.)

-Application deployments/migrations.

(QuickBooks, Deltek/Ajera, AutoCAD network licensing, Carlson, CCH, Thomson Reuters, Sage, etc…)

-ConnectWise Manage, Zendesk, Kaseya, and Symantec ServiceDesk ticketing systems.

-ConnectWise Automate, Datto, Continuum, N-Able, and Symantec Altiris RMM tools.

-VMware ESXi hosts, vCenter, Hyper-V, Windows Server, Linux and Mac.

(Hardware ranges from Dell PowerEdge/Dell EqualLogic/HPE ProLiant/HP Blade/Nimble/Cisco UCS/Aberdeen/etc…)

-Domain builds and migrations.

(This includes installing all services, configuring AD/DHCP/DNS, building out the users from CSV, file shares and permissions, GPO, printers, etc… I’ve done enough of these that I’ve scripted most of the build out process to make it faster.)

-RDS/TS and SQL deployments/migrations.

-Azure/O365 environments.

-Federations/Azure AD Connect.

-O365/Mail/Teams/OneDrive/SharePoint migrations
(I’ve migrated away from local Exchange, O365 to O365, GoDaddy to O365, Gmail to O365, etc…)

-Intune and Autopilot for OOBE and Azure AD domain join.
