My objective is to obtain a Senior systems/network administration management position with a growing organization that will benefit from my strong problem-solving skills, technology experience, and aptitude for cost-effectively improving efficiency. While I am interested in onsite work, I prefer to use my knowledge of remote administration to deliver offsite services, cutting overhead without impacting responsiveness, quality, or communication.
Summary of Qualifications
I have extensive experience in systems, network, and database administration, as well as communication and storage system design, deployment, and maintenance, gained while employed by others and while serving clients of my own company, in-canada.com. Currently, my focus is on cloud and virtualization technologies and how they can be best leveraged to help organizations take advantage of their cost, flexibility, and functional advantages. Able to work well independently or as part of a group, I learn new concepts and technologies quickly and have a well-developed talent for integrating them with existing systems.
