I am a reliable technical architect and support analyst, providing support to clients and co-workers alike. I am frequently sought for my problem solving and analytical skills, responsible for arriving at the most appropriate design or resolution for requirements and problems. My background is varied and my interests include programming, scripting, advanced troubleshooting and requirements analysis. I enjoy working in a team and overcoming the challenges we meet on the way. I am always looking for opportunities to develop my skills in interesting environments.
