As with so many positions before, my role at PSE has been multi-faceted. During my tenure at PSE I was able to transition PSE from being fully dependent on external consultants for every aspect of Information Technology to being fully independent and self-sustaining. I rebuilt the entirety of the virtualized environment in a way that better enables us to sustain power outages and other business continuity challenges. Having 6+ sites, I bolstered the inter-site collaboration capabilities through WAN/VPN upgrades and improvements. I also extended our security compliance to meet regulatory requirements by many customers in the energy sector (some of which were held to extremely high governmental standards). For the first 3 years, I continually reduced the IT costs. I built a helpdesk and hired/trained a technician to fill the desktop support role. I spent a great deal of time working with and investigating other CRM and ERP systems. I supported a nearly full transition of licensing and product usage to Office 365 including Email, Teams, Sharepoint, Onedrive, Forms, Stream, etc. I worked with the teams to phase out the use of Skype in favor of Microsoft Teams which eventually turned out to be beneficial as this recent COVID-19 incident occurred. Additionally, I implemented a series of remote management and support tools that enabled us to maintain a high level of support in the midst of a primarily remote workforce. All of the backend processes and procedures that I deployed and implemented over the past 3 years enabled us to support a nearly full remote workforce during this pandemic with little to no impact to productivity.

● VMWare Horizon/Unidesk VDI Implementation and Maintenance As the Senior Systems Administrator at AllClearID, I had several integral roles. I was the Administrator and Operator of several Microsoft domains including Exchange email services as well as VMWare Clusters and network resources such as Cisco Ironports. After several years of maintaining a Hyper-V HA cluster, I have architected and migrated fully to VMWare. Other duties that I was responsible for is patch administration using WSUS and SCCM along with PBX, DNS, and Backup Administration. In order to maintain uptime, I have administered several HA Microsoft services including Clustered Virtualization, email spooling, and VMWare in an HA configuration. To support these, I have maintained both Dell PowerVault, Equallogic, Tegile and Pure Solid State SANs. The security services implemented include a dual factor VPN using Duo and Centrify, Palo Alto, and Cisco IronPorts in a HA and load balanced cluster configuration. Finally, I have trained and groomed desktop technicians to fill legacy and new roles successfully. In this training, we were able to bring a call center agent with limited experience to an autonomous and relatively self-sufficient technician role in under 6 months. We also successfully implemented a ticketing system that allowed better service with increased visibility for issue tracking and PCI/ISO auditing. Finally, and most recently, I coordinated and implemented a migration from Mitel to Five9 for our call center. Customer Service Manager Feb. 2011 – June 2012
