All positions have required being a "hands-on" supervisor and most have required recruiting, training, and developing staff. I have extensive experience in large scale LAN and WAN engineering, process engineering, quality engineering, software development and integrating applications across multiple hardware platforms. I believe that I am able to offer an almost unique blend of experience in PC and network systems, covering engineering, design and maintenance services as well as the ability to design and integrate systems using purpose designed software and standard commercial software. I have extensive experience in planning and managing software development and hardware integration efforts to maximize income on fixed price contracts.
