Sr. Infrastructure Architect And Messaging Consultant Resume

SUMMARY:

  • In search of a challenging technical environment that will utilize my experience, energy and passion for technology. To continue to implement, design, and support stable, simple, secure and highly available technical solutions for mid to large organizations. I am looking for that long term fit but the short - term engagements are allowing me to keep up on the latest cloud architecture, licensing, and services. Having the experience and exposure leading and supporting large enterprises allows me to share and mentor IT and other departments on how to get the most out of the technology without over complicating, which is rewarding.
  • I have realized that it is very hard to get 20+ years of hard work, dedication, ethics, and love of technology into a 3-page resume. I don’t know it all but if you think that I may be a fit but don’t see something please contact me. The skills listed in my resume are areas that I have in depth experience and knowledge. I am able to “hit the floor running”
