A lifelong lover of technology, I've been knee-deep in computers since the single-digits. I'm passionate about helping people come to a better understanding of technology in every sense of the term.
At The Orthopedic Center my boss and I worked together in every aspect of IT. Everything from VCenter Virtualized Servers (both Server 2008 and Ubuntu Server), workstation imaging and setup, copier/printer maintenance and upkeep, to troubleshooting computer software/hardware issues. One minute we were spinning up a new Virtual Linux Server and the next might have been helping a coworker remotely over the phone. Every day was exciting at TOC.
At Apple I helped enrich lives through helping customers at the Genius Bar. Working at Apple was a great experience. It was neat to be a part of one of the world's top technology companies and to see how they enrich lives with technology.
I've also been an entrepreneur. Running Made from Scratch Computers was an incredible, life-changing experience. The one man show was a challenge as I sold, serviced, administered, consulted, and promoted my business. I had a lot on my plate, but took it all in stride and enjoyed the fruits of my labor. In the end Apple came along and I had to make a hard decision to set entrepreneurship aside and join one of the world's best companies. I know I made the right choice even though it was tough.
All in all I can see myself in just about any environment that involves technology in some form. No limits. I'll take on anything. I plan on going where the technology tide flows and enjoying the ride all the way.
I'm a quick learner, hard worker, and a team player. I'm detail oriented, resourceful, and knowledgeable. I always exceed expectations and help others do the same. I consider all options and see all sides of every issue. I can take trying situations and turn them into triumphs. I welcome and embrace challenge and change.
Let's connect and I'll show you what I mean.
