Professional Profile

I’m Anthony Critelli. I’m currently a Sr. Principal Engineering Technologist at Dell Technologies (after their acquisition of Cloudify). I’m also an avid technical writer and trainer. I was a regular contributor and “Sudoer” author on the Red Hat Enable Sysadmin blog until they eliminated the communities in 2023. Currently, I primarly write on Medium and my own blog. My articles have seen millions of views, and I’ve consistently received recognition for my ability to explain complex topics (both in written and presentation form).

If you’re interested in working together on a consulting engagement, please get in touch. I’m happy to provide “hands on” engineering work, as well as technical writing, training, and presentations.

I graduated with a B.S. in Networking and Systems Administration from the Rochester Institute of Technology in 2014 and an M.S. in Information Sciences and Technologies (also from RIT) in 2019. My previous experience includes network engineering for civil air traffic control networks (while at Harris), consultative engineering (while at SMP), general Windows and Linux systems administration (at RIT), and Linux systems engineering (at Datto). I’ve also had network co-op experience with Cisco Meraki and Wegmans Food Markets.

Personal Profile

I currently live in the city of Rochester, NY. I love living here, and have no interest in relocating. In my free time, you can usually find me:

  • Learning something new. I like writing code and building small apps or scripts.
  • Exploring Rochester. I love this city, and you can usually find me attending some cool event with my wife.
  • Reading. My book list is growing way faster than I can keep up, but that’s OK.

About this site

In case you’re interested: I spent a lot of time figuring out how I wanted to create this site. I eventually settled on using Hugo with my own custom-written theme. I was using the Academic theme for awhile, but decided to roll my own theme so that I would have more control. As you can probably tell from this site, I’m not a front-end guy.
