Technical Support Specialist

As a Technical Support Specialist for the school system, I assisted staff and students with computer issues. Highlights of this position include building a microcontroller and software to replace an aging school bell system, developing the district's Drupal website, strengthening network security, and fixing long term DNS issues the district had been experiencing.

October 2012 - March 2017

Director

I managed the SnowSports school for Shawnee Peak. This is where I became interested in Systems Analysis and Software Development. I built my first LAMP stack, and PHP application to track employees time. I also created a reservation system using Microsoft Access and MySQL.

Education

August 2006 - May 2010

Associate of Science

Out of High School I was unsure of what career path I wanted to follow, but growing up in the 90s I had college drilled into my brain as a requirement not an option. So I decided to follow my interest in public service by attending Southern Maine Community College's Fire Science Technology program.

August 2002 - May 2005

High School Diploma

Royal Academy was a great option for my learning style. I'm a strong believer traditional school's don't work for everyone. Royal Academy provides guidance and curriculum to home school students and parents. Royal Academy allowed me to start a career in management at a younger age, and also work towards obtaining my pilots licence.
