Professional Summary

Autodidactic technology generalist with 3+ years of relevant experience in system administration, which includes but is not limited to the configuration, maintenance and documentation of Linux, Mac OS X, Windows-based systems w/ iOS & Android mobile devices. During this time I have devoted myself to understanding networking structures (OSI model) and command line interface. Essential to developing my skills, are the implementation of Virtual Labs to test, analyze and deploy new technologies. My 15+ experience in the service/hospitality industry has allowed me to hone my communication skills, facilitating my ability clearly articulate complex technical issues to clients and share holders even while under stress. This time also allowed me to expand empathy in team environment or in a leadership role. I have began experimenting with cloud services (PaaS, SaaS, IaaS) and Security Concepts: investigating Cyber Wargames (overthewire, Hackthebox) and how to combine these with my current skills to produce more value and mitigate risk for shareholders and management. I am willing, able, and ready to perform my role as a System Administrator.
