Hi!

I'm Loren Lisk A.K.A. Liskl, and I Create.

Recently I lead development on LisklCraft, a private Minecraft Server hosted on a private linux server. I helped build the Neverwinter Nights eXtender nwnx With Papillon (Ingmar Stieger) during the years of 2003-2005. Here is the Server rack that runs most things I work on. These days you can find me playing or working on datacenter liskl as well as learning about everything linux. I work in Smyrna, Georgia, and live in the amazing city of Marietta, Georgia. I'm currently linked in to many different people for many diferent reasons.

  • Clarence Winfield - Chattahoochee Technical College, Coworker

    Loren is very technical and knowlegeable of his position and many other aspects and areas of the Technical Support division of Chattahoochee Technical College. Not only does he performs his primary duties efficiently and promptly, his performance is the same or better when assigned to or volunteers to help with other projects. He is always trying/willing to learn more and is constantly getting training for and works hard at earning various IT certifications. Working with Loren has also increased my knowledge in some area's of IT.

  • Kay Kamara - Chattahoochee Technical College, Teacher

    Loren was an outstanding student who has a keen understanding of all technical aspects for the field of study. He has a genuine IT knowledge more than any other students that I have taught. It is Loren's firm understanding of the technology field that has made him one for the strongest candidate in his field. I highly recommend Loren for his endeavors. Loren is a highly motivated, dedicated, and a knowledgeable student who will succeed and any task. I have no doubt that he will be highly regarded as a valuable team member. I am confident that he will take a full advantage of the opportunities that you offer.

  • Victoria Gardner - Chattahoochee Technical College, Manager

    As a Federal Work Study, Loren put in more hours than required under the program, often keeping the pace of many of the full time staff. His diversity in the technology field, gained as much under personal experience as education, made him a great asset during his time in our support department. Problem solving is among his many strengths. Not afraid of a challenge, Loren took his personal time to "tweak" existing applications, making them more efficient, faster, saving time and resources. He is supportive of other people's ideas and will offer to help to bring about the best results.

  • Enrique Velazquez - Peer1 Hosting, Executive Staff

    To Whom It May Concern,

    I have had the distinct pleasure of working with Loren Lisk during our shared time at Peer 1 Hosting. In that time he had consistently gone above and beyond the call of duty in a number of ways. The most impactful of which would be developing a new ticketing dashboard that not only impacted the Atlanta office, but because the tool used worldwide across our entire office.

    His dedication and excellent customer service skills are top notch, and he would be an asset to any company who'd want to hire him.

  • Jeff Bragdon - Peer1 Hosting, Direct Supervisor

    To Whom It May Concern,

    Over the course of my employment with Peer1, I had the great pleasure of filling the role of a supervisor responsible for Loren Lisk. He proved himself over and over again an excellent Linux engineer with deep understanding of the root operating systems and applications that make business class hosting successful.

    I came to rely on him for his ability to quickly resolve issues, his quality customer service, and his overall job performance.

    Often, he was talked about in management meetings as one of our anchors for which we built shifts around.

    Recently I left Peer1 for another opportunity which is only a Windows based environment, or I would be after Loren myself.

    You could not ask for a more hard working, intelligent, experienced Linux engineer.
