I believe that I have an distinct advantage in several areas over other systems engineers. My knowledge is based on a long and intensive background in the industry. My technical skills were refined through college courses and my 3.6 GPA (based on a 4.0) reflects how I excelled in these classes. The four degrees I have attained focus around technology. I have graduated with B.A. Mathematics, B.S. Computer Information Systems, A.S. Engineering, and I recently completed a Masters degree in Computer Science with an emphasis in network engineering at the University of Nebraska.

My work experience is also related to my educational background, as I worked for the IT department while enrolled at Union College. Mixed through various points in my life, I have also been self-employed. These contract jobs have never interfered with my classes, part-time work at Union, or later full-time employment. My senior year internship was based in Network/Internet Engineering at Healthcare Management Solutions. Upon graduating, I was hired immediately by HMS for full-time employment. My responsibilities increased exponentially during the 2 years I worked there. I resigned and headed for South Africa, where I settled in as a network architect and Linux administrator. After my first year in the UNL graduate program, Helderberg College requested and paid for another year at their facility in South Africa. I encourage you to view the job descriptions in my resume.

Finally, my desire to steadily enrich my life with new information mirrors a personality that strives for success. Feel free to ask for references, as they can give an unbiased confirmation of my work attitude. I should note that all of my employers have been very pleased with the customer evaluation of my performance. Helderberg College valued my expertise to the point of requesting a second year and extending my responsibilities from network architecture to also include classroom instruction at their tertiary institution. Alltel and Verizon Wireless trusted my leadership qualities by placing my engineering role at the forefront of a tier 1 application. Nelnet has requested my participation in committees that branch out from typical job description to concepts that affect the long-term viability of the company.

I have achieved the lead/primary engineering role at both Alltel and Verizon Wireless on the Wireless Application Protocol platform that accounted for over 100 million subscribers. There is a distinct knowledge set required for maintaining a geo-redundant, highly-threaded, complex application that extends out from the purely technical expertise into the management arena (project leadership and capital budgeting).

As you can see, working within a wide range of computer and mobile-based fields through my lifetime has given me an advantage. My on-site interaction with the users and other technicians has likewise prepared me to deal with a variety of situations.

Thank you for your time.
