    10+ years experience in Linux System Administration and web hosting

    United States - Last active: 03/28/2011 - Tests: 2

    I have been involved in Linux and FreeBSD system administration for over 10 years when I began managing servers for a social networking website. After starting my own web hosting business and working in multiple positions in both the private and public sector, I consider myself an expert in system administration and designing systems to meet customer needs. With degrees in Business Honors and Management Information Systems, I can quickly articulate business needs and translate these into technical requirements. My technical experience allows me to then research and choose the best and most economical needs to match customer requirements.
