Solutions Engineer I


Night shift responsibility for a 10k sq. ft. data center. I do everything from custodial work to port testing. It's not as much IT as I'd like and my lack of visibility may be a limitation in the future.

Enterprise Technical Support Sr. Analyst

Dell Services

Perot Systems became Dell Services.

Systems Support Administrator became Network Analyst became Enterprise Technical Support Sr. Analyst.

My primary function is adding network devices to monitoring. My secondary function is filling in for whomever calls in sick or goes on vacation - no matter what their function is. I am the only completely cross-trained analyst in the U.S.

Knowledge Management Content Specialist

Perot Systems

I was originally hired and trained as a helpdesk agent. I was pulled out of training to help with projects that the trainers were working on. One project just lead to another so they made a place for me to work on things like debugging spreadsheets (Excel), building databases (MS Access, MySQL), writing KB articles (Healthcare IS), and migrating data in and out of wikis and other formats. It was fun while it lasted. It was so much fun, that we even worked on it after hours (Project Limelight). I think I worked myself out a job, though. I was "benched" and picked up by the C3 group as a SysAdmin (see next position)

I should state here what I've done, but I don't necessarily have to (or want to) do what I'm doing now.

I am an IT PROFESSIONAL with areas of emphasis in Content Management, Linux, and virtualization.

I have a B.S. in Earth Systems Science & Policy from CSU - Monterey Bay. It was a lot of chemistry, biology, and a little physics and genetics. My capstone project analyzed biotech lab activities for application to CA state teaching standards. GRE 680/730

I'm multi-talented and adaptable. I perform best when challenged. If there's nothing special or unusual about your job req, you probably don't need me.

Preference is also given to work that benefits other human beings.
