I'm looking to work with companies who embrace change, are agile, and not weighted down by comittee decision making. I prefer to do what ever it takes to solve a problem, and be as persistent as possible until a solution or work-around is found. I also prefer to utilize open source, and open standards where ever possible, to prevent vendor lock in.

Manager of two other IT employee's, one programmer, and one help desk support person. I work without a budget, and have designed extremely low cost solutions utilizing open source software, and commodity hardware to support the various web based (private) applications we have on premise. I'm also very interested in looking at the various hybrid cloud computing solutions to further reduce our costs in IT. Utilizing a "trust no-one" encryption scheme, I can design an incredibly secure infrastructure using cloud computing as the platform, and by being the sole owner of the encryption keys, making the entire platform extremely secure.

Command and Control Specialist
I volunteered for various TDY (temporary duty) missions during the Persian Gulf War, as a command and control specialist for various cargo squadrons. I also designed a complete pilot staging program, during a night shift at R.A.F Mildenhall, UK, in which headquarters designated our base as a staging location for flights to and from the Middle East. Under intense pressure, I solved this problem, with no guidance, and the flow and design of my system lasted long after I left the TDY assignment.
