Justin Meader

Apple Certified Systems Administrator

Apple Certified

Justin Meader is Apple Certified in the most extensive certification path Apple has ever offered: Apple Certified Systems Administrator. He was trained by the incredibly knowledgeable instructors at Future Media Concepts in Cambridge, MA.


Over a Decade Of Mac Experience

Justin has been working with Macs in mixed environments for more than 12 years, starting with OS X 10.4 Tiger and continuing through the most recent release, macOS High Sierra. 

Mixed Environment Expertise

With more businesses bringing Apple products into their environment, there is an increased demand to make sure those devices adhere to Active Directory group policies. Justin has experience with industry-leading solutions like JAMF Software’s Casper Suite, Centrify, and macOS Server.


…and more

While Justin’s focus has been the support and integration of Apple products, he’s no slouch with Windows either. He has experience managing Active Directory, WSUS, Hyper-V, Windows File and Print Services, and much more. He also has experience administering Office 365 and Google Apps for Business (GSuite).

Born and Raised

Contrary to popular belief, parts of Maine are not that far from civilization. Justin was born in Dover, NH and raised just across the Piscataqua River in the small town of Eliot, ME where he currently resides after a year in San Francisco. Eliot is about 60 miles from the nearby city of Boston, MA.

The Non-Work Stuff

Likes

  • Video Games 

    Justin has a lifelong love for video games. He competed in Nintendo Powerfest ’94, and was the 1995 Blockbuster Video Store Champion for Portsmouth, NH.

  • Twitch

    You can often find Justin live on Twitch, broadcasting games and swearing. A lot.

  • Bourbon 

    Jack Daniels is called “Tennessee Whiskey” but it’s essentially bourbon that wasn’t bottled in Kentucky… which means they can’t call it bourbon.

  • Dogs 

    Justin and his family own three dogs. They all bark a lot. Chances are good you’ll hear them sometime.

  • Guitars 

    Guitars and guitarmanship are things that Justin loves. He owns more guitars than he can play with two hands.

Favorites

  • Music

    I like Dave Matthews.

  • Movies 

    Have you seen a Star War?

  • TV 

    Breaking Bad ruined the rest of television for me. It’s not really worth watching anymore.

  • Video Games 

    Definitely not Chrono Cross, that’s for sure.
