Hello and thank you for visiting my eProfile.
I am a Systems Engineer and general computer professional with a major focus in Satellite Communications and IT during my 18 years of work experience.
I first spent a number of years in the IT field involved primarily in networking. My first IT job was as an Assistant Network Administrator while still a junior in high school.
One of my first jobs out of college was as a software instructor for about a year and a half teaching computers and software products. The classes that I taught were mostly 8 hour courses given to a different group of approximately 30 students every day. I was an exceptional instructor and was rewarded with "Instructor of the Month" for three months straight. I was then promoted to IT Manager where I was in charge of all the PCs at the training facility.
Not too long after, I joined the Field Organization team with a large defense contractor based out of Salt Lake City, Utah. However, I spent less than 4 weeks there in my 11 years with the company due to the nature of the Field Organization. For the majority of the time I worked on and around various mobile and fixed, miniaturized and very large communications systems. These systems were largely associated with highly classified military programs in remote locations. As a result I was able to obtain a high level security clearance and spent a large part of my career on the road. I have moved and deployed to many remote locations over the years.
During my time with this company I've advanced my career by completing my bachelor's degree in IT and obtained several valuable industry standard certifications. Soon I hope to further advance my education by enrolling in a Master's program. I have also taken it upon myself to learn programming and provide some very valuable products for my employer. Some of these projects are featured on this website in the Projects section. I invite you to take a few minutes to explore those projects and to view my resume. If you'd like to contact me, you're welcome to fill out the contact form to send me a message. My contact information is also displayed in the header of this website.
I've recently moved into a new position as a Systems Engineer and have settled down in the Salt Lake Valley.
