My Résumé
Last modified December 27th, 2016.


Below is a copy of my résumé. I am currently seeking a permanent or contract position as a system administrator. If I seem to lack a qualification you're looking for, don't worry; I'm an extremely fast study! I am especially interested in stable companies with good benefits. A position with little or no travel would be ideal. I would prefer a position in the Columbia/Baltimore Area, but I am willing to relocate anywhere for the right job!

My address and telephone number are available upon request.

a distributed environment consisting of hundreds of servers operating from 
multiple data centers around the world.  The environment utilized horizontally

platform, image archive servers, RAID's, &  SAN's, including DataDirect 
Networks (DDN) SAN's, render servers used during the printing process, and

constant state of hardware expansion and rearchitecting, it is difficult to 
quantify the number of servers in use in each role.  There were over 400 
application servers, 15 dedicated cache servers for static content, over a 
petabyte of online SAN storage, and 8 outgoing mail servers.  Most of these 
servers, except for some one-off machines and the database servers previously 
mentioned, were running Solaris on the x86 platform.  Some of the one-off 
machines ran Solaris on the x86 platform while others ran Linux, primarily 
Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL).  In addition to general systems administra-
