About

Greetings!

My name is Joseph Dissmeyer.

Follow me on twitter, https://twitter.com/joedissmeyer. I welcome witty banter :)

I'm a tech geek, work in IT, married to the most perfect person in the world to me, and have three amazing kids.

I love my family more than anything else in this world.

I love my job.

I love learning new things and new technologies.

I want to be the absolute best at what I do no matter if it is at work, at home, or in my community.

I strive to inspire others to be the absolute best version of themselves.

I love when people around me succeed! It inspires me to be a better employee, a better husband, and a better father.

I want to be a better Joey today than I was yesterday.

This is the way that I live life. It is my hope to pass these values to my children so they too can inspire future generations to be better as well.


Back in 2014 I wrote a guide book on SolarWinds NPM software.
It is available on Amazon!

"SolarWinds Orion Network Performance Monitor", published by Packt Publishing.


I am the "big picture" guy. I have a deep understanding of how I.T. systems work and how they affect businesses.

I am the "relationship guy" too. I care deeply about my personal, family, community and professional relationships.

I know that I am not perfect, so I don't try to be. But I do strive to do the right thing the first time, all the time.
