I have twenty years + of experience: programming; computer repair; building PC’s; Mac professional; beta testing;software development and database management.
Started on a VAC Mainframe; learned the ropes on a Cray super computer. I know my way around Winchester hard drive systems. Early on in my teen years, learned how to code on a Tandy TRS-80 computer; then moved up to a Tandy Color Computer and finally on to an Apple ][c. In 1985, was a member of the Southern California System-Operators’ guild as a programming ASCII graphics for several BBS’s. Have been coding for half of my life.
During college years, held computer-related jobs by working for an all Macintosh repair company in a retail outlet. Aside from the standard memory and hard drive configurations with which I was involved professionally, I was also the Control Stock Inventory person, responsible for over two million dollars in computer parts. Utilizing my FileMaker Pro knowledge, my reputation for running a ‘tight ship’ and accurate control base was well known. During this period of time, I was attending college, working 30+ hours a week and managed to make the Dean’s List.
In 1992, I returned to the Macintosh scene with the Centris & Quadra series. I have personally worked with both Mac & PC platforms throughout the 1990’s. When Y2K came through, I was 90% Macintosh, 10% PC. The combination of my knowledge of control stock, dealing with Apple Order as well as being a Sr. Macintosh hardware/software tech, my career choice in the world of computers was clear cut. Per my resume, I have worked in the high pressure world of the motion picture industry for over a decade.
Additionally, I am a Free Mason and have been an active member for ten years. For four years, I have run a Masonic newspaper called THE THREE-POINTS-OF-LIGHT, which was the beginning of my interest and active involvement in blogging.
I am an active weekend musician, who is classically & jazz trained. In 1988, awarded The Herb Alpert Music Scholarship. I enjoy researching advancing technology, often combining the classical arts of music with the modern science of computers.
I am a person of many hobbies and intellectual pursuits, all of which are combined with my career choice of computer/technology work. As my resume reveals per my work record, I am a loyal, long term employee who works with a strong honor code. A native of Los Angeles and a United States Citizen, any background check is welcomed and easily passed. I am interested in moving ahead to a position of more responsibility utilizing my extensive experience in technology and my curiosity to learn as new challenges appear.
