Objective: I am currently very happy with my job as the Vice President, Information Technologies Operations at Eagle Asset Management. I am treated well and I LOVE my job. I work with great people at a great company. Best job I ever had, bar none!

I keep my resume here partly out of vanity and partly because I get asked about what type of background I have. This is the most convenient place to do that.

Summary Education Experience Page & Addison Contract Work Awards



Having worked for more than 16 years on numerous hardware and software platforms, I have developed a large base of experience in solving problems and developing applications. This knowledge allows me to go from system to system with minimum training time and allows me to bring new insight to a project. I become an immediate asset as soon as I am brought onto a project. I am looking for a challenging position where I can bring my considerable talents and experience to bear to solve problems and create solutions in a team oriented environment. I currently own a 133MHz Pentium computer bootable in DOS, Windows 95, Windows NT/AS 3.5, OS/2 Warp, Novell UnixWare 2.01, and Linux to keep current on hardware, software, and operating system trends.
