Profile

I have used computers since i was eight and supported or taught others since I was 15 years old. I am experienced in computer administration, systems analysis and technical support. I have worked in Academic, Corporate and Freelance environments locally and internationally on everything from iphones and workstations to servers and automobiles. I have enjoyed a wide range of IT support challenges, familiar and surprising. I am interested in working in roles which provide excellent systems support for current systems while looking forward toward future technical needs and developing new solutions to those future problems.
