Summary

I am a flexible, fast learning network engineer with an easy going personality. I love learning new technologies and understanding how they impact our lives and businesses.  I am looking for the next great challenge, a place to learn and teach, a place to serve my clients with superb customer service and top notch technical expertise.

Although I have experience in campus route switch, wireless and security, over the past 4 years I have focused on the Network Data Center.  Opening 4 new international data centers in the past 15 months.  I enjoy engaging with the business and other IT teams to work out the planning, sizing and implementation execution details of bringing up a new production site.

Personality and Strengths

I have always felt that everyone has a few things they do very well, a long list of  others we accomplish with passing performance and a few activities that just don't fit us at all.  These are the things that make me who I am:

I am a detail oriented person who seeks out perfection in processes, documentation and when it makes sense, automation.  I am a student of performance.  I enjoy both working in a team and flying solo.  I am easy to get along with, but don't pressure people into small talk.  Put me in a room with six difference groups of people and I'll find something in common and of common interest with every one.

I wholeheartedly believe that technology is a wonderful leverage that businesses can invest in to make their product even better and the workforce more productive.  I care about the bottom line, the deal breaker and the customer experience with equal measure. 

Things I don't care about would include a 'buzz-word, ego filled dance off', letting who found solution get in the way of making progress and beating folks up for making mistakes in the name of the creative process.
