I am an experienced Systems Administrator who has worked in both Windows and Linux environments. I have followed course work in Networking, Information Security, Systems Analysis, and Project Management. I am also passionate about Application Development, particularly in Python's Django Framework.

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.
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.
I graduated with a Major in Applied Science and Minors in Computer Information Systems and Web Applications. I followed the Computer Information Systems course load, taking a lot of extra classes in Networking and Information Security.
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.
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.
