I've worked in IT for more than 10 years, and have been involved with supporting and deploying hundreds of networks in all sizes from a few PCs to thousands of them.  Working in IT is my passion, and I love the exciting changes and challenges it brings to me each and every day.  

As a senior IT support professional, I help keep critical network infrastructure running and available for many local businesses and organizations.  I take tremendous pride in developing and deploying solutions that provide maximum return on investment.

If you or someone you know is frustrated with their IT systems, I can help.
