STATESIDE server admin - project manager - web development - security

United States - Tests: 13

Your business is important. It is more than your livelihood, it is your identity in your community. Why would you trust that to third-world talent? I have worked exclusively in web hosting over the past 11 years, for a number of hosting operations on both windows and unix platforms. I am very client focused, and am adept at explaining complex issues to non-technical clients without "talking down" to them. Despite my non-linear abilities, I work very methodically ensuring consistent results. I specialize in infrastructure development, deployment, maintenance, defense. and disaster recovery. I have extensive experience in all areas and levels of customer support, and have setup support operations from helpdesk software, chat, and voip servers for toll free support lines, to staffing, training, technical writing, and quality assurance.
