An experienced, enterprise-level, Unix Senior Systems Administrator living
in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, I am currently looking for a position in
Enterprise Computing support and development.
As my resume indicates I have over 20 years experience supporting networking and computing in enterprise computing operations.

person team expanded into a 200 person department supplemented with "Local
Support Providers" in every department of the University.
Since its release I have been working extensively with Mac OS X Client and
Server. I have been beta testing Mac OS X Server with Apple since its first
I would like to discuss with you my experience and qualifications and the
contributions I could make to your organization.
