Thanks for stopping by. My name is Phil Gervasi, and I appreciate the opportunity to share some of my thoughts with you.

Currently, I’m a director of technical evangelism with Kentik, but I’ve also been a network architect and engineer for several VARs working on a variety of network projects across the United States.

Many years ago I was a high school teacher, and until recently taught various technology classes at a local community college. Teaching part-time was extremely rewarding, and I’m profoundly grateful for the opportunity.

In my spare time I like to work on writing projects, create videos, read, work out, and chase the kids around the house.

Always feel free to reach out through this site, Twitter, or by email.

  1. HI there – your videos were really helpful getting my music studio and students set up to teach over Zoom in the spring of 2020.
    Now that Zoom has apparently changed their music optimizations, now my students are having echoes on their end. I started online lessons again last week (had a couple of weeks off after the summer) I ask my students to enable Original Sound, and I have OS on on my end. They are getting echoes, I’m not. When they turned their OS off, it didn’t change, but when I turned MY OS off, the echoes stopped.

    So, my student today was getting echoes while she talked, but I wasn’t hearing echoes, and I wasn’t echoing on her end. I had her turn off her OS, and the echo continued. I turned mine off, and the echoes stopped. She turned her OS back ON, and everything was fine. I continued our lesson with her OS on, mine off, and she could still hear my piano coming through smoothly….
    What is going on, and have you heard of other people having this problem? Could use some guidance!! 😀
