Professional Background
Technical Consultant
7B Technology LLC
September 2017 – Present
Sandpoint Idaho
7B Technology is a technical consulting company that I started to provide a value-based approach for providing IT services to small and medium businesses.  At 7B Technology I work with businesses to find affordable, reliable and scalable technical solutions that support their business initiatives and goals.  I am currently working on network hardware upgrades, virtual system implementations and cloud migrations.  The part I most enjoy about consulting is the opportunity to design and implement a wide variety of solutions to address the individual needs of the unique businesses that I work with.
LAN Support Techhnician
Biomedical Innovations
March 2016 – September 2017
Sandpoint Idaho
While at BioMed, I managed all aspects of an Enterprise Microsoft branch office network with 60 + users, including Active Directory, Exchange, SharePoint, Group Policy, WSUS and system imaging.  Management of all network hardware and software lifecycles, procurement, configuration and implementation.  Management of WAN, VPN and Remote Access for staff.  Management of mobile and wireless devices such as cell phones, tablets and laptops etc.  One of the more extensive projects that I was tasked with was converting product/device labels from one software vendor to another.  This was quite an involved process and took many months and involved many departments.  It was a great experience builder for projects that involved many regulatory agencies and stringent manufacturing process and product controls.
Sr. System Administrator
Litehouse Foods
June 2011 – June 2014
Sandpoint Idaho
My final role at Litehouse was Sr. System/Network Administrator for a network of 600+ users across three main facilities.  I used my 10+ years of IT experience to design and implement hardware and software infrastructure solutions that supported Litehouse’s business initiatives while also providing high service availability.  I was responsible for maintaining the core Windows Server operating systems and their individual roles/features.  I was also responsible for the core network infrastructure that these systems used for communication both internally and externally.  During the three years I was employed at Litehouse, I helped change the culture through the implementation of the ITILv3 framework.  Through this implementation Litehouse realized higher software and hardware availability and improved service delivery.  The Litehouse IT Department also evolved from a firefighting culture to one of controlled change.  Before leaving we were involved in continuous improvement of existing processes and providing our users with more opportunity for “self-service”.
