I am very computer saavy and hold A+ certification from Comp TIA.  My technical skills are second to none.  I have the ability to visualize process and find the most efficient method of troubleshooting whether it be a technical problem or people based.  My many years of management experience has given me the ability to work through most personnel issues with a focus on retention and training that benefits the company and employee.  I am a creative problem solver.  I can find solutions to problems that most people give up on.  I am dedicated, loyal and have a work ethic that is unparalleled.


I have been fortunate to have an exciting and varied career path.  I have learned so much and have had opportunities that many people never get.  As i am settling in on the second half of my life i find myself looking to settle down and bring my many skills to bear for a company i can spend the rest of my career with.  My moral compass points true and i am the hardest working individual i have ever known.  I look forward to the opportunity to discuss how my skills can be of benefit to you.
