Summary

With over 17+ years of IT experience, I’ve made a career out of learning the technologies and tools to accomplish some of the most dynamic IT initiatives.

I’m looking for a company that will appreciate and take advantage of this experience and challenge me to expand my knowledge and keep growing as a professional.
