I have had many roles and titles throughout my career. Director, Manager, Supervisor, Consultant, Administrator, Network Analyst, Systems Admin, Database Developer, Web Designer and Technician. I've been referred to as a "Swiss Army Knife of IT". To sum it all up, I'm an IT Professional looking to simplify IT for the masses.DOWNLOAD MY RESUME

There is no substitute for experience, unless you can gain it from the experiences of others. Albert Einstein summed it up so succinctly when he stated: “The only source of knowledge is experience.” I would be nowhere if it weren't for the thousands of hours I have logged as an IT Professional. Learning each step of the way, from successes and failures. Mistakes happen, learning from them is how knowledge transforms into wisdom.
