About

My name is Brad Christian. I’m a virtualization architect with over 10 years of experience in enterprise IT. I do both server and desktop virtualization.

I’m a VCP 5/4/3 (VMware Certified Professional) and I am working on the VCAP-DCA 5 and the VCAP-DCD 5 certifications. That’s the  VMware Certified Advanced Professional – Datacenter Administration and  the VMware Certified Advanced Professional – Datacenter Design certifications. My eventual goal is go for the VCDX (Design Expert). I also have the usual Microsoft certifications, MCSE and MCDBA.

Why vHipster? Besides being active in the Dallas/Fort Worth VMware Users Group and general VMware and datacenter shenanigans (the V), I suffer from femoroacetabular impingement (Hipster). That’s when bone spurs start growing down into the joint. I’ve spent a lot of time on crutches or using a cane, so I got hung with the Hipster moniker by various smart-asses.

I have had several hip surgeries to reshape the bone of my pelvis and thighbones and had cadaver cartilage transplanted to fix the shredded mess in my hip sockets. Since you can only have two hip replacements in your whole life, each of which lasts 10 years each, I am in big trouble if I don’t work out like a fiend to keep in shape and try to keep my hips healthy. I spend a lot of time doing barbell squats, kettlebell swings and yoga to keep my muscles and tendons healthy. I am a big proponent of Crossfit-type workouts, Olympic lifting and the paleo lifestyle.

Here is a filthy picture of my crotch on the Intertubes:
