Having 35+ years in IT, both as a sole proprietor and as a senior team players at both EstesGroup and System Source's Consulting and Integration Services group, has prepared me to be an asset to any company that contracts with me. I've achieved my goal of becoming geographically independent and have traveled extensively, although I would love to see more of the world. I currently reside in Loveland, Colorado.
I go after technical challenges with a vengeance, and if it requires late nights or overtime to get the job done right, I'm there until the job is done... right!
My current role is Director of IT Services for EstesGroup. I'm taking my years of expertise, combined with remote management of my servers and my client's systems and turning it into an AWESOME product. Now you can benefit from my experience directly!
In my primary role as Systems Engineer, I have executed many Office 365 migrations, SharePoint deployments and too many email upgrades, migrations and troubleshooting sessions to count.
In my Web Hoster role, I maintain multiple servers providing the traditional web hosting services for my clients. Finding low/no cost tools to automate routines, provide proactive notifications and keep my servers running at top performance is my goal.
In my Systems Engineering role, I am one of 5 Senior SE's, where we often back each other up in complex integrations and upgrades. I've deployed our Intranet upgrade and spearheaded the monitoring of the infrastructure with HP Systems Insight Manager and other tools. I've maintained networks from 5 to 25,000 nodes. (Can you say "Change Management" :)
In my Technical Presenter role, I take the latest technology and make it understandable to the corporate and/or technology personnel. Regular seminars mean we deliver the latest offers to our client base.
In my Training role, I teach most Microsoft Technology as well as security classes, and the occasional pinch-hitter - Windows 101 - a.k.a. Managing Windows Server)
