  • Summary

    A seasoned IT professional with 26+ years of experience in a variety of environments, I’ve been a team member/team leader and I’ve worked solo on major stand-alone projects. On many projects, I’ve been involved in every aspect of the development life-cycle. I’ve been responsible for everything from acquiring the hardware and installing the operating system, to designing/maintaining the databases, and writing/testing/implementing all software code. I’ve also spent the last 17 years working as the lone technical support person for two different companies. I’ve been responsible for providing networking, computer hardware, server administration and help desk services.

    My strong communication skills have allowed me to be successful in working with customers to define requirements, and end-users with training/implementation/maintenance issues. I take pride in the fact that I’m a self-motivated individual able to quickly pick up new skills, work with little to no supervision, as well as work with team members in a co-operative environment.
