Goal

Finding long-term employment doing what I love most: technical mastery in the world of network and system administration!

Profile

I have been working in the Information Technology sector since 2006, primarily supporting school computer networks of 100+ users and devices. In these particular environments I have acquired the skills to tackle almost any kind of situation. I am experienced working with budget constraints and love solving problems quickly, efficiently and permanently. I have worked in other fields such as retail, hospitality, production, theatre and entertainment. This eclectic range of experience gives me the ability to visualise solutions from a variety of different perspectives.
