I am a very dedicated and loyal individual with strong work ethics that lives and breathes storage and virtualization technologies. I have had the honor and privilege to work for two great companies over the past twenty years where I learned many things and gained invaluable experience. I was able to apply this knowledge and experience to help both of these companies develop their infrastructures to meet all internal user and external customer demands. At my latest tenure at EDR, I was the only storage administrator and the primary VMWare administrator for over ten years. This is a position I took very seriously and performed with great pride and satisfaction.
