Network architect and lead engineer

Highly skilled network architect and engineer with over 20 years experience on various Cisco and Arista platforms integrating datacenter technologies. Bring me in if you're looking for an extra set of eyes on a complex infrastructure project. I provide perspective and a different point of view. I'll push your vendors to identify weak points or incompatibles before purchasing. I can help run Proof of Concepts. I can help troubleshoot problems within existing infrastructure. My most successful contracts have been with companies looking for someone that their engineering staff can us as a resource. I build relationships with your engineers. I joined UpWork to connect with companies that would like access to a non-partial Senior level Network Architect and Engineer without having to hire one full time.
