I've been working in the IT field in various capacities since 1998, and have been writing and delivering e-courses since 2008.
Previous experience includes Service Delivery Managment and Sales Engineering at Qwest Communications, and WAN Solutions Coordinator at SunGard.
I got my Cisco CCNA and CCDA certifications in 2001, and attended CCNP Routing, Switching and Security classes and MCSE Server classes in 2002.
Since 2007 I've worked as a consultant on a variety of IT projects, including coordinating a large network and wireless migration at DHL, documenting DR plans for AAA and building a user-friendly and dynamic SharePoint site with custom navigation and graphics for Freeport McMoran's sales organization. I also built a large interactive web site for Custom Training Institute.
I'm looking to move into the area of web and graphic design, either on the development or project side. I am also open to network project coordination and service delivery management opportunities or SharePoint development projects as well as training, e-learning and curriculum development.
I lived in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil from 1984 to 1994, and speak fluent Portuguese and decent Spanish. I have one daughter and two young grandkids who I love to spoil. I currently live in sunny Scottsdale, AZ with my elderly Tibetan Spaniel, Taz. I volunteer with Hospice of the Valley and love to paint, draw, make jewelry, photography and play with PhotoShop as well as hike, bike and surf the 'Net, not necessarily in that order... :-)
