I am well versed in a broad range of Linux, Windows, and Apple systems, open source applications, and IP networks. I take security seriously, and can implement security measures at all levels, including the network perimeter, host, and application level. I am a team player, strong leader, innovative and resourceful, with a common sense approach to problem solving.
I am looking for a challenging position that best suits my range of talents and interests.
In December 2008, I purchased the customer base and server assets of my former employer, Net Idea, and launched Secure by Design. The new company continues to be a regional ISP with a focus on security awareness and customer service.
Responsible for procuring, deploying, and maintaining a network of more than 20 Linux servers and OpenBSD systems in 2 data centers for a regional ISP. I've worked with ethernet, dial-up, ADSL, and municipal wireless networks. Involved in programming a number of web applications, including the company's billing and provisioning system, and numerous web sites for clients.
I was originally hired for technical support / customer service position. This position honed my communication and trouble shooting skills, and helped me discover that I am a patient listener with good visualization skills and the ability to explain technical problems to the computer illiterate in a friendly manner.
