I am an IT professional with 35 years' experience in all phases of software, hardware, systems, and networks. For the last 11 years, my focus has been consulting with clients in need of solid resources for their IT teams whether in a direct hire or contract role. I use my background as an Information Technology practitioner, my experience in the technical marketplace, and my knowledge of the Memphis business community to provide exactly the person my clients need, rather than a barrage of resumes with the "right" words on them.
A little about my background....
In my 30 years in information technology, I have held customer service focused positions with many large technology service providers worldwide. My career began in Memphis as a Systems Engineer for Data General Corporation's (now EMC) six-state Southeast Region. After serving as Professional Services Manager for DGC in Atlanta and as Program Manager in Engineering Sales Support for Compaq Corporation in Houston, I returned to Memphis as Director of Oracle Corporation's Major Accounts South Consulting Practice. I gained my experience as an IT practitioner having served as Director, Management Information Systems and Development at several large corporations in Memphis.
I hold a B.S. in Business Administration and Management Information Systems from Christian Brothers University and an A.S. in Computer Science from Tennessee State Technical Institute (now Southwest Tennessee Community College). I am a Certified Personnel Consultant (CPC) and a Certified Temporary Staffing Specialist (CTS).
I am a native Memphian active in many community organizations and on the Board of the Memphis Chapter of the Society for Information Management (SIM).
