Sr. Solutions Architect Resume

Scottsdale, AZ

SUMMARY

  • My first computer experience was trying to catalog parts and manuals on an old Zenith Z100 that was covered an inch deep in dust.
  • From there I worked Tandem Mainframes, PC Help - desk, Field Technician, managed desktops, ran miles of fiber, connected networks, routed millions of email for US Sailors using FreeBSD and installed the first Exchange Server on the island of Guam.
  • Since then I've maintained a cross-platform discipline and continue to grow and encapsulate that know­how.
  • Today I design, manage, maintain and monitor both on-prem and cloud systems consisting of Windows, Linux, databases, web servers, email, networking and security.
