Skills Summary

I have over twenty-five years experience providing IT business solutions. My experience includes IT management, project management, systems analysis and design, programming and application support and training. In 1987, as the Advanced Manufacturing and Inventory Management Support Groups in Atlanta Project Lead for IBM for the MAPICS, I was fortunate to have the opportunity to train with IBM’s staff in Rochester, MN on the then new AS400. I have since worked as an AS400 / iSeries specialist for many companies in a variety of industries.

I have a strong technical and programming background but my real strengths lie in my business knowledge, my ability to understand and adapt to new situations and the way I work with people. I am honest and realistic in both my solutions to problems and in reporting to management. I try to bring the most practical and efficient solution to each opportunity without sacrificing quality.
Since 2012, I have been working and teaching at various companies on short duration projects. Please ask me for additional information.
