I am an IT Director for construction company in Arizona. We are a medium sized business 0-250 but I have worked for much larger (2000+). I have about 15 years experience in all aspects of operations such as project deployment, security and general oversight of budgeting and all the great things that go along with employee management. I also have extensive experience with server 2003/2008, Exchange, Active Directory, network architecture, Vista/XP, Office Suite, switches, routers, firewalls, VPN technologies, remote access implementations, wifi and the list goes on! I don't think you should be the boss if you dont have the technical experience in tandem.
I love Experts Exchange and think I found a home here. I use EE to answer questions and share knowledge with others. I have earned ranks in many zones but mostly live in Server 2003/2008/Active Directory and Exchange zones. Being here less then a year so far I have run up the ranks quickly to become a top expert. I enjoy the complex questions that may not have an obvious answer. I am normally in touch with email in some fashion so I respond to questions pretty quickly. I answer so many questions its sometimes hard to keep track of all the emails but feel free to post with follow ups if you don't see a response.
I also do consulting for small to medium sized businesses. I will work with large clients but my preference is medium sized since I feel IT makes more of an impact on that level and clients see results quickly, whether its a new server, upgrading network technologies or consulting on how IT can help growth through business intelligence. I also have extensive experience helping develop business processes to streamline operations. Information is the key to making informed decisions!
<<Am I available for hire>>
Of course! I can work on your network or servers mostly remotely but I am available to be on site. If your issue/deployments need an onsite visit please contact me so we can make arrangements. I would like to work local to AZ or the southwest in general, but I am willing to discuss other arrangements should the right opportunity arise.
I hold an Associates and Bachelors in Computer Science and will be undertaking post graduate studies in the very near future. If you would like to contact my regarding EE or external work please email me (of course after dechipering my email obfuscation)
