What I do:
I provide systems and application support for Academic Technology services.  I assist developers by planning and provisioning resources to facilitate the applications that they develop.  I help to diagnose and resolve application/systems issues that impact AT services.  I also help with desktop support concerns in my role as an FSP for Academic Technology’s staff.
Education & Background:
B.S. Engineering Physics, University of Illinois, 2005Prior to joining Academic Technology in Sept. ’08, I worked for the School of Art + Design at the University of Illinois as a network analyst.  My responsibilities there included server administration, computer lab administration and general IT support for faculty, staff and students.
Professional Interests:
I am always looking to pick up new tools and learn new systems administration techniques.  I also have a growing interest in software development, since writing software helps inform my understanding of the applications I use and support daily.
