I have over 4 years experience working in IT management and lead positions. I have worked 18 years with information systems with various software suites such as RHEL, UNIX, and Windows Server. Previously, I served as Site Lead and IT Technical Manager in San Antonio and currently work as a DCGS-A FSR and Trainer for DCGS-A at Fort Hood. My daily duties entail working with multiple virtualized Linux and Windows servers to interact with the oracle database either through command line, SSH, Telnet, PL/SQL, or bash scripts.

I have an intimate knowledge of IT architecture after working in a mixed environment consisting of Windows, Linux, UNIX, and Silicon Graphics based Operating Systems as well as a broad array of application servers that include Oracle 11g, Oracle 10g RAC, JBOSS, Tomcat, PHP, and other multi-tier web applications and hardware systems.
