Being a student with an early itch for technology was a challenge. I’ve spent my career developing rich experience and interest understanding the fast paced evolution of technology.
Highlights: Project management, SAAS strategies, Global business, Business law
DeVry allowed me to polish off my work experience by adding a more diverse perspective in business. Some of my favorite projects included breaking down real life case studies: General Motors moving operations to Russia, Monsanto’s GMO technologies on agriculture and Walmart’s global impact on distribution.
Associates Applied Science
Computer Information Systems
Highlights: Microsoft enterprise implementations, Network infrastructure, Hardware/software, Project management
Early in my technical career the web was not what it is today. Fueled by onsite work experience and personal projects we were making the rules up as we went. Since I have been working with Hardware/Software since the MSDOS days I choose a concentration in networking specifically Microsoft and Cisco Enterprise implementations. This core background has proven to be an invaluable foundation for my technical career.
Cisco Networking CCNA
Highlights: Network Topology, OSI Model, DNS, Routing and Switching Protocols
Networking is everywhere; you’ll find its core principles in Application Development and Systems Architecture. Understanding the principles of Protocols, Routing, DNS and Network topology is helpful to understanding how complex environments work at a fundamental level. I’ve relied upon my cisco basics throughout much of my career as a developer.
