Profile

With close to 14 years of experience in the IT field I feel I have an excellent understanding of business IT needs and solutions. For the past 10 years I have specialized in systems integration, infrastructure, and a wide variety of Microsoft enterprise platforms.

I have planened, designed, implemented and maintained various enterprise LANs and Microsoft Server solutions, core infrastructure and domains including SharePoint, SQL Server, Exchange and Lync/Skype server and Dynamics CRM. For the last 8 years I have continued to specialize in network and systems infrastructure with a strong focus on Microsoft SharePoint as well as Microsoft SQL Server.

I have successfully completed over 100 SharePoint Farm deployments, including over 50 large enterprise deployments for over 20 clients. I have a clear and established understanding of SharePoint configuration, architecture and ECM governance.

For the last 5 years I have been working for custom development firms and working very closely with developers, so have an extremely good understanding of the development environment, as well as the Software Development Life Cycle. I have experience with Visual Studio, Team Foundation Server, HTML, SharePoint Solution management and configuration, and of course SharePoint Designer.

In recent years I have completed over 30 large scale production designs and implementations of multiple enterprise platforms with a large number of various clients in both the public and private sectors, including government and not for profit.

I offer much more than just a technical resource presence. I bring a strong consulting skill set to the table, with multiple years of project management and delivery. Offering IT business analyst, SME guidance, and end user support through the delivery of many diverse projects I have gained the experience needed to provide top level IT and business strategy alignment to my clients.
