Early in my career, I worked for 2 years as a software developer with client server applications using Microsoft Access and VBA, Visual Basic, and SQL Server.
For the past 14 years, I have been working in a Deployment and Infrastructure Support role. Some of the software technologies include Websphere, Weblogic, IIS, Cold Fusion, SQL Server, JBOSS, and TWS. I work on projects that handle deployments, tier 1 and 2 support, and server lease rolls. During the first seven years in the Deployment and Infrastructure Support role, I also spent time as a Configuration Manager helping to lead efforts in developing repeatable software deployment processes and putting quality gates in place for software throughout the Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC) using tools like TRUEchange, VSS, ChangeMan, CVS, and SVN. I have experience working on UNIX (HP, IBM, Oracle), Linux, OpenVMS, Windows 3.1 through Windows 10, and Windows NT 3.x, 4,x, Windows 2000, Windows Server 2003, 2008, and 2012 operating systems.
I have been working with computer hardware for the past 34 years and starting working on PC hardware 17 years ago. Working different jobs, I've gained experience working on desktops, laptops, server hardware, and some networking.
I have experience with Cisco CCNA, CCNP, and Microsoft MCSE course work, and I am currently a certified Brocade vRouter Engineer.
On my personal time I like to work with VMWare projects at home exploring the exciting world of operating system virtualization, home media servers and infrastructure, and play Minecraft with the kids. I also spend time volunteering with the local school district and with the city I live in.
