IT Manager with VMware and web server experience
After spending ten years working as the Director of IT for Perteet Inc. (a Transportation design and planning firm in Everett, wa), I have decided to pursue a full time freelance career. I am experienced managing all aspects of the IT environment from business processes and policies to systems administration. While I was at Perteet I was part of the management team and was a key part of the day to day operation of the business. I assisted in policy development and oversaw the implementation of an ERP/CRM system and multiple document management databases. I also was responsible for vendor management and negotiated contracts.
At Perteet I lead a team of individuals who were responsible for all aspects of the network from data management to desktop support. I am competent operating VMware vSphere and Hyper-V in SAN environments with fault tolerance, replication, and backup. I have extensive knowledge of Microsoft server technologies including Active Directory, Exchange, Sharepoint, IIS and SQL. I also know how to configure and administer routers, switches, firewalls and other networking technologies.
Between 2008 and 2013 I owned and operated a web hosting business that supported the web design clients that my colleague worked with. During that time I hosted over a hundred different web domains (email, mySQL, web) on an Ubuntu Linux web server running on VMware. All software was free and open source.
I am seeking short term engagements where I can gain more experience working freelance remotely over the internet. I am interested in implementation projects, project planning, troubleshooting, management, and other opportunities. I am available to work immediately.
