Technologist, IT Director, Communicator. I have served as an IT professional since 2000. My first computer job was working for Creative Labs, Inc. supporting Sound Blaster Live! and other products. I have owned my own technology consulting firm and have been employed full time as the IT Director since 2006. I write for geekbraindump.com as a way of collaborating with others, documenting challenges and projects and promoting my career as an IT professional. I come from a belief that IT is as much a science as it is an art. Taking a project from conception to completion takes an array of skills which includes critical and creative thinking as well as excellent communications skills. It is my goal to constantly shape and refine these skills and help others develop and improve their skills.
