I am an American living in South Wales for 14 years now with my wife and 3 children. I am a positive, self-motivated, hard working, detail oriented person with a dedication to maintaining high quality standards and a commitment to lifelong learning and self-development. I have the ability to work reliably as part of a team or individually. Also, I adapt to new surroundings quickly, and have a logical approach to problem solving with the ability to review situations and make decisions. I possess both good communication and technical skills that make for effective systems design, deployment, administration and support.
In my spare time I love to spend time with my family. 2015 is the year of the House for us, as we have been and will be spending much of our free time designing and extension to our house, transforming it into the family home we . We also love being fit and healthy. I also enjoy going to the movies, reading magazines, Mexican and Thai food, listening to, collecting and playing music, traveling, and catching up with old friends.
