I have been working in the IT field for 15 years, focusing on infrastructure and information security for the past eight years including policy development, system and network auditing, incident handling procedures, disaster recovery planning and implementation, acceptable use and policy development, firewall implementation and administration, and physical security.
For the seven years prior to that I operated a Value Added Reseller in the Chicago area which foucsed on networking, selling and supporting purpose-built servers and infrastructure equipment.
I've recently relocated to Ann Arbor to consumate a long standing, long distance relationship and while I'm doing some consulting am looking to settle down here with a more permanent position, so if you're in need of some help, please write!
