Leon Adato


In a career spanning three decades and four countries, Leon Adato has been an actor, electrician, carpenter, stage combat instructor, pest control technician, Sunday school teacher, and ASL interpreter. He also occasionally worked on computers.

Leon got his start teaching computer classes, worked his way up the IT food chain from desktop support to server support to desktop environment standardization engineer and onward, to systems monitoring, management, and automation. Along the way, he discovered a weird love for taking tests, and picked up an alphabet's worth of certifications, including WPCR, CNE, A+, MCP, MCSE, MCSE+I, CCNA, and SCP.

Leon spent almost 20 years honing his monitoring skills at companies that ranged from big (National City Bank) to bigger (Cardinal Health®) to ludicrous (Nestlé®), becoming proficient with a variety of tools and solutions along the way.
