Summary

My professional passion is networking, I have been doing support for many years. I particularly enjoy making things work - I take pride in fixing problems when other people can't. For me, networking environments and security is an everyday on-going learning process. I love to take on large projects with one or many people on a team. I like to be in control with the intent of making things run smoothly.  There are not too many things I have not seen in day-to-day operations. 

I have a background electrical technologies and taught a basic electrical class at NH Community college in Manchester. Helping people that want to be helped is something I truly enjoy. I love to share with others what I have leaned.

Most recently, I've been working on 'greenification' projects with respect to facilities management and project control. I was involved in a large-scale old mill renovation and helped design and document systems that resulted in a Gold LEEDS certification.

My Major Goals in Life: To become Director of IT at a hospital & to become a certified EMT in my spare time.
