Software Engineer, Programmer, and Student of Life in Austin, Texas
I am an IT professional with a lifelong background in Information Technology ranging anywhere from entry level documentation to IT Management (with a lot in between: experienced web developer, systems administrator, network administrator, application developer, college instructor, etc.).
I have been consistently recognized for my technical (and non-technical) troubleshooting skills used to rapidly and cost-effectively resolve challenging technical issues. I am equally successful in both team and self-directed settings. Though, I am admittedly not a people person - I prefer rules and policies to making friends.
I am proficient in a range of computer systems, languages, tools and testing methodologies. My ultimate goal is to find that perfect career that allows me to do what I love, earn enough of a salary to take care of myself and my family, and which allows me to spend time with my family and friends.
Specialties: My greatest skill would have to be the ability to jump into anything and “run” with it. I have a great natural talent for learning any new task, job, or skill in a very short time. I quickly learn and master new technology. I have made use of this talent on many occasions; from teaching myself how to operate forklifts, to teaching myself PHP/MySQL on the job, to teaching myself Asterisk and networking, and trouble-shooting problems at my current company.
