Tech Stack Information

Senior Linux Systems Administrator

Self-starting, highly motivated Linux expert offering many years experience as an open source aficionado and creator of healthy and robust Linux server environments. I will bring more than 2 decades of Senior Unix/Linux Systems Administration experience to your team. My work ethic is unquestioned, and I can comfortably work and interface with both technical and non-technical personnel. I have trained and mentored several Junior Systems Administrators who have gone on to great careers in their own departments and companies.

My preferred distributions are the Debian strains, such as Ubuntu. My secondary distribution would be Red Hat derivatives such as CentOS.

My preferred work method is telecommuting, with which I have several years experience.

I'm currently seeking a company where I can work with a team of Systems Administrators, mentoring the Junior Systems Administrators, and working hand in hand with other Senior Systems Administrators, bouncing ideas off one another to troubleshoot issues and resolve them as rapidly and as safely as possible. The company I seek will provide a work environment where employees feel that they and their work are appreciated and respected, and where they feel excited about starting work each and every day.
