    Summary
    I started in the computer industry as a help desk professional supporting UNIX boxes for a major pharmaceutical company. After 3+ years experience dealing specifically with these early UNIX system installations, their configuration and trouble-shooting, I relocated to Michigan and went to work for Kmart (KIH International Headquarters) direct hire in support of their pharmaceutical computer systems and associated servers and computer systems supporting batch and billing components. I supported at this level for a total of 8+ years before making a move from the Retail Industry to the Manufacturing arena. In 2000 I left Kmart and was hired at EDS (Electronic Data Systems) as a computer analyst supporting a GM maintenance management package (Maximo) utilizing Web/App/DB functions of a 3rd party software package. My primary role was that of a Unix, Netware, and Wintel systems Administrator supporting hundreds of deployments Nationally. After three years of supporting this division, I moved into the UNIX group supporting a gambit of Unix-related deployments inclusive of Sun-Solaris, HP-UX, AIX, SGI, SCO and of late, RHEL and SUSE Linux platforms. NIS was heavily used prior to the adoption of LDAP authentication. In 2003 I moved to the Enterprise Services Hosting organization supporting General Motors requests. I worked as an engineer deploying Web, App and DB layers in their large data-center space for Hosting Systems. In 2006, voluntarily at the request of my management, I moved into a role which was required by my organization to provide effort estimation, and participate in writing contractual agreements for GM to approve and fund. This position was to review, critique and estimate the engineering effort and provide an entire package with risks, constraints and deliverable s. Oral and written communication skills, technical comprehension, and writing of binding contracts.
